Step Back Think receives funding from Victorian Government

In a new agreement reached with the Andrews Labor Government, Step Back Think is proud to announce it will receive $200, 000 in 2015-2016 to support its work to eradicate social violence in the community.

Under the new agreement, Step Back Think will continue to raise awareness of the dangers of social violence and educate the community on the consequences of violence, as well as contributing to research in the field of social violence prevention.

Step Back Think, which works to educate thousands of Victorian students each year about the effects of social violence on victims and perpetrators, will also be developing a new strategic direction, with a focus on partnerships and financial sustainability.

The organisation seeks to secure diversified funding sources and establish new partnerships with a range of organisations that share the Step Back Think vision to drive the cultural change that ends social violence.

Step Back Think CEO, Anna O’Halloran says of the new agreement, “We are grateful for the Government’s ongoing support of Step Back Think, which assists us in continuing our work to drive the cultural change that ends social violence. This funding will ensure that our important work in the areas of research, education and awareness continues to positively impact Victorian students and the broader community.”
