The Western Regional Coalition to End Violence (WRCEV) is a partnership of representatives from government agencies, community groups, schools, churches, service organizations, concerned individuals and volunteers who live and/or work in Western Newfoundland.  Our Coalition works in partnership with the Provincial Violence Prevention Initiative to increase awareness of all forms of violence, their impact, service needs, and how we can work together to promote safe, violence-free communities.  There are seven local coordinating committees (LCC’s) operating under the umbrella of our Coalition throughout Western Newfoundland.  LCC’s exist in Port aux Basques, Burgeo, Bay-St-George, Corner Brook/Bay of Islands, Deer Lake, Cow Head/Rocky Harbour, and Port Saunders (for information on how to contact your local committee see Local Contacts).

The VPI and Why
The Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) is a five year, multi- departmental, government community partnership to find long term solutions to the problem of violence against most at risk in our society- women, children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups who are victims of violence because of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability. The VPI is coordinated by Women’s Policy Office and include four major government departments (Health, Justice, Education and Human Resources and Employment) and six Regional Coordinating Committees. The VPI builds upon the work of the Provincial Strategy Against Violence. Its vision is that “people in our province will live in safe caring communities  where there is an  inherent respect for each other and violence is  unacceptable”. The goals of the VPI are to enhance the community’s and governments capacity to coordinate violence prevention activities and service delivery in the regions, and to improve the coordination and quality of services and programs provided by government departments and agencies with violence related mandates.  For more info contact...
