We would like to offer you the film: "Family Violence and its Impact on Children".  We trust you will use this film appropriately.  It is an ideal format for promoting that you are committed to "Stopping Abuse in Families Everywhere" for Rotary Clubs, Family Violence support organisations and the general public. The messages are sobering and intentional in content.

This film carries the message that we must not be an inactive bystander,  we must apply the 3 RRR's of Rotary SAFE Families:

  1. Recognise – the signs, behaviours and culture that drive abuse
  2. Raise – your voice and call it out safely
  3. Refer – for support

Watch the films with their powerful messages around learning to recognise abuse, be informed and able to safely raise your concerns and then refer the victim or possible victim, to Police (if emergency) and/or an appropriate support agency in your neighbourhood.
