This report is a snapshot of a project managed by the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley in partnership with the National Crime Prevention Program, to reduce the incidence of domestic violence within the community. The aims of the Working With Adolescents to Prevent Domestic Violence - Indigenous Rural Model were to increase awareness and understanding of domestic violence in the Derby community; develop and implement culturally appropriate strategies for the intervention and/or reduction of domestic violence in Derby through active participation of adolescents, families and communities; and provide a practical and sustainable model through working in partnership with relevant agencies/service providers and key Aboriginal organisations. The report describes program initiatives established within the community and identifies some key elements essential for establishing and maintaining such programs.
