Thank you ShantiWorks for bringing us the Duluth model conference. It is the second time we have attended it and again got so much out of it. While an enormous amount has been and continues to be achieved by the sector in Victoria, we are inspired by what has been achieved in Duluth by a committed group of people making a sustained effort into solving this most intractable problem – violence against women and their children. We are really interested in hearing from other agencies who attended the Duluth conference and who might be considering what can be done in their local area – anyone open to a community of practice?
