New ‘Rize Above Violence’ program in development. Have your say! 

The Rize Above Violence program is a newly funded primary intervention initiative, led by Relationships Australia South Australia’s Community Projects Team and Specialised Family Violence Support Service, in partnership with the City of Salisbury. 

The core principals of the program include: 

  • Primary intervention: highlighting the importance of addressing social contexts that sets the scene for unhealthy relationships and violence
  • Building skills: supporting communities of young people, their families and professionals to challenge rigid gender roles and gender inequality 
  • Collaboration: a program that is not just inclusive, but responsive to and embracing of the diversity in our community. 

Post-community consultation, the program will deliver an online and in-school respectful relationship program, an interactive website and a youth development peer-mentor program.
