Neighbours, Friends
and Families
Grey Bruce Campaign
November 2007
March 2008
Neighbours, Friends and Families is a
campaign to raise awareness of the
signs of woman abuse so that people
who are close to an at-risk woman or
abusive man can help
Death Review Committee Findings
2004
….in response to high risk cases, friends,
neighbours, family and coworkers have an
essential role to play as part of a wider
coordinated community response.
Neighbours, Friends and Families
A project of the Grey Bruce Domestic
Violence Coordinating Committee, in
partnership with:
the Ontario Government, the Ontario
Women’s Directorate, the Expert Panel on
Neighbours, Friends and Families, and the
Centre for Research and Education on
Violence Against Women and Children
Neighbours, Friends and Families have a crucial
role to play in preventing woman abuse
Everyone can learn about the warning signs of
woman abuse and learn how to help
You can help by reading the brochures and safety
cards and by making them available to people you
know
Communities working together can make a
difference in abused women’s and children’s lives
Talking to abusive men is critical to ending woman
abuse
Abusive behaviour won’t go away by itself. There
are services in Grey Bruce to help men who abuse
Everyone in Grey Bruce can…
Learn to recognize warning signs and high risk factors and
take them seriously
Support abused women and abusive men by talking to
them and making sure they know about community
supports
Get involved to prevent violence. It’s just like like getting
involved when someone is drinking and driving
Contact local service providers or the Assaulted Women’s
Helpline if you need help dealing with the issue.
Call the police in an emergency
How the Campaign Works
Champions, Networks and
Connections
Community Champions
Our Community Champions are the heart
of the Grey Bruce NFF Campaign.
We are honoured to have sixteen
volunteer Community Champions to start the
campaign.
By the end of the campaign there will be
many more.
Community Champions
The campaign will engage both men and women
as Community Champions.
We know that men are an untapped resource for
violence prevention.
We know that the issue of woman abuse affects
men as deeply and as often as women.
Our Community Champions
From all walks of life they bring
their knowledge and their
commitment to end violence
against women
Networks and Connections
How small groups of people make
big things happen.
Everyone can do something, and
everything makes a difference
