Projects

Southern Mallee PCP Buloke Family Violence Prevention Project

Southern Mallee PCP welcomed State Government funding of $140,000 towards family violence prevention in the Buloke Shire. The aim of the project is to create an equal and respectful Buloke community, free from violence. The Southern Mallee PCP Buloke Strategic Health and Wellbeing Partnership (Buloke Shire Council, East Wimmera Health Service, Mallee Track Health and Community Service and SMPCP) will co-design with the Buloke community, family violence prevention strategies and interventions using localised evidence to inform a prevention Action Plan. The Action Plan will drive change with the community, focusing on gender equality and the primary prevention of family violence. The Project Working Group will be established, who will be responsible for developing and implementing the localised Action Plan, engaging the community in the project and promoting key messages across Buloke. The project will have a strong prevention focus that will enable the community to build their inclusiveness and resilience.

Buloke Living Book Project 

Southern Mallee PCP received Community Engagement and Support funding from the Department of Health and Human Services for the drought declared Buloke and Gannawarra Shires. In Buloke, the funding went towards building the skills of the local community in mental health and wellbeing strategies and a community development project; The Buloke Living Photography Project. Additional Partnership Drought funding from Buloke Shire Council and Wimmera Uniting Care was put toward this project, with support from East Wimmera Health Service.

This project was facilitated by Deanna Neville, Focus on Community and has given the opportunity to a range of community members and local agencies to connect through photography and storytelling, with the aim to produce a book relating to why it is great to live in the Buloke Shire. The finished product features stories and photographs reflecting stories of community strengths and resilience in Buloke and a series of prints for display. Three hundred books have been printed and distributed throughout the Shire, with online access below.
