Network to Eliminate Violence in Relationships (NEVR)
Creating a safe Surrey for all our residents means providing supports for those struggling in relationships and making it clear that relationship violence is not acceptable. The Network to Eliminate Violence in Relationships (NEVR) aims to eradicate relationship-based violence within our community.
The campaign collaborates with community stakeholders and partners, in order to advocate, educate and work to eradicate violence in relationships. NEVR, along with its partners, organizes events and conferences, and creates education materials in various languages that:
- Promote healthy relationships
- Help to increase identification of relationship violence
- Increase intervention by citizens
- Increase awareness programs for men, resulting in a decrease in domestic violence incidents.
The campaign’s focus is driven by strong research and evidence gathered from family violence courts, the Ministry of Child and Family Development and other research.
In February 2017 there will be a major event to promote positive relationships and provide support and outreach to those that need help. Volunteer to support campaigns like NEVR by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
