The community of Broadmeadows has the second-highest reported rate of relationship violence in the state of Victoria, Australia. Banksia Gardens Community Services (BGCS) sponsors the Good People Act Now (GPAN) program to raise awareness about relationship violence in Broadmeadows. Drawing on input from the community and from GPAN volunteers and BGCS staff, we strengthened the GPAN program. We updated and expanded the program’s website by improving the logo and color scheme and adding maps of local domestic violence support services, multilingual resources, and informational graphics. We developed recruitment materials to target students in local colleges, and we networked with other services to increase the reach of the program.
