Purpose: This 36-month project will develop a community plan to address the challenges and barriers that limit efforts to address violence against women and girls along the south shore of Nova Scotia in Lunenburg County and neighbouring Queens County, paying particular attention to the issue of sexual assault. In addition to targetting women affected by violence, the group will engage men and boys in working to stop violence against women and in encouraging healthy relationships among both sexes. In order to broaden the impact of the plan, the Centre will publicize information on the plan, its partners and their roles and links to resources, best practices, and relevant services on its website.
