In just four years there has been a 300 per cent increase in family violence incidents in Benalla.
Each year since 2010, Benalla Health has held a White Ribbon Day March Against Violence in Benalla to highlight the issue, provide support and encouragement to victims, educate the community and provide an opportunity for the community to take a stand against family violence.
This year Benalla Health launched a new initiative: Benalla White Ribbon Day Supporters. As a Benalla White Ribbon Day supporter, organisations commit to becoming part of the solution and not part of the problem.
By signing the declaration on behalf of the board, executive and staff, Benalla Health declared it will support the Hume Preventing Violence Against Women and Children Charter and support the goals and objectives of White Ribbon Day.
