Building a Safe Benalla
Benalla Health is committed to building a safe benalla through the work of the Benalla Health and Wellbeing Action Group which incorporates the Benalla Family Violence Network.
This group of agencies is committed to working with the people of Benalla to reduce Family Violence in all of its forms. Of most concern is the prevalance of family violence involving children.
Former Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said:
"Family violence continues to be a blight on our society. It’s driving up crimes such as assaults, property damage, rapes and harassment."
