A resourcekit that focuses on promoting equality and respect within faith communities has been launched in Gippsland.

And the man who helped bring it to the region says his organisation is like “the boy with the barrow”.

“We’ve got the work in front of us, I would suggest,” Gippsland Ethnic Communities’ Council secretary and Gippsland Interfaith chair Murray Lobley said.

Mr Lobley helped to launch the CHALLENGE kit at a Latrobe Valley event on 20 September, hoping to assist faith and spiritual leaders to understand the issue and causes of family violence.

It was initially developed with State Government funding through a partnership between the City of Casey, Cardinia Shire, City of Greater Dandenong and Monash Health, and informs different faith communities how they can take action to prevent and respond to family violence.

Mr Lobley said GECC had distributed about 50 copies of the kit since its Gippsland launch, with his attention now turned to continuing the conversation.

“A result of the Tuesday night is we’ve now got some organisations approaching us and saying, ‘can you repeat that in our community?’,” Mr Lobley said.

“What we’ve got to do now is to develop our presentation (based on) how do you introduce this?”

The kit contains fact sheets on different forms and myths of violence; ideas for promoting gender equality; support service contact information and various faith perspectives.

Mr Lobley said GECC would provide continued support to those who chose to use the kit and hoped to keep the issue in the forefront of people’s minds.
