Australian communities are taking action in many ways to reduce levels of violence in Australian society. The projects described in this volume are drawn from the projects included in the Australian Violence Prevention Award Program between 1992 and 1995. Each entry describes one project, including details of the violence prevention strategy that it has adopted, the effectiveness of the project, its current status, its funding and staffing resources, and a contact point for further information. The Australian Violence Prevention Awards are administered by the Australian Institute of Criminology.
