CARE stands for Collective Action for Respect and Equality. CARE was established in 2020 by WHLM to build workforce capacity and support organisations in the region to engage in activities and initiatives that, collectively, contribute to the primary prevention of violence against women.
There are currently over 30 CARE partner organisations in the Loddon Mallee region, and new partners are welcome to join at any time.
All interested organisations, clubs, and community groups in the Loddon Mallee are invited to join the CARE partnership. Preventing violence against women is everyone’s business, and we all have role to play.

Thank you to our current CARE Partner Organisations:
CARE stands for Collective Action for Respect and Equality. CARE was established in 2020 by Women’s Health Loddon Mallee to build workforce capacity and support organisations in the region to engage in activities and initiatives that collectively contribute to the primary prevention of violence against women. There are over 30 CARE partner organisations and new partners are welcome at any time.
WHLM is the regional women’s health service for communities across north-west Victoria. We hold the backbone role in the CARE Partnership, which means we coordinate, administrate, and support collaborative spaces for primary prevention action, connection and learning in the Loddon Mallee.
Our vision is to achieve gender equality by addressing gender inequities and the determinants of women’s health through leadership, advocacy, working in partnership, and supporting multi sectoral cultural and systemic change.
The CARE Partnership purpose is to grow and sustain a coordinated multi-sectoral approach for primary prevention of violence against women across the Loddon Mallee region. Our goal is a region free from gendered violence where communities actively champion gender equality. CARE ensures that organisations keep gender equality on the agenda and provides support to do so.
No. While family violence prevention networks may join the CARE Partnership as a community group, individual organisations within those networks must join separately for the organisation to be part of the CARE Partnership. To join the CARE Partnership please fill out the EOI form.
Preventing violence against women is everyone’s business, and we all have role to play.
Women’s Health Loddon Mallee invite community groups, organisations and clubs in the Loddon Mallee region to join the CARE Partnership and take part in collective action to prevent violence against women before it starts.
