Publicity, Public Education and Others
A series of publicity campaigns and various public education programmes to promote positive values towards life, strengthen family functions and enhance people's resilience in coping with stress for prevention of abuse and violence have been launched at different levels.

Strengthening Families and Combating Violence

Social Welfare Department (SWD) has launched a Publicity Campaign on "Strengthening Families and Combating Violence" since August 2002 to arouse public awareness on loving our family, combating violence and promoting positive attitudes of seeking timely and early assistance. In the past years, the publicity campaign consisted of large scale seminars, roadside boards in different districts, distribution of CD-ROM and production of different souvenirs.  Television Announcements of Public Interest (TVAPIs) and Radio Announcements of Public interest (Radio API) are broadcasted through television, radio and other mass media network.  Posters are displayed in housing estates, stations and hospitals.  Besides, SWD launch many promotion activities in local districts and organise training for frontline professionals.

Family Life Education

A variety of preventive programmes delivered through family life education activities which are conducted by SWD and NGOs aim at enhancing family functioning, strengthening family relationships by equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills required in coping with changing roles and demands in life, and promoting public awareness of the problem of child abuse and spouse / cohabitant battering.
