Violence Prevention Southwest
Violence Prevention Southwest, formed in 2006, consists of representatives from the three local coordinating committees:
- Peaceful Communities (Port aux Basques, the Codroy Valley and southwestern Newfoundland coastal communities)
- The HELP Committee (Burgeo)
- The Bay St. George Coalition to End Violence (Bay St. George South, Stephenville and the Port au Port Peninsula)
Each of these three committees works to engage the support of all stakeholders in our communities to address issues of violence. We work together with schools, businesses, churches, law enforcement, health professionals, government agencies and other community organizations to spread the word that violence prevention is everyone’s responsibility.
