Family Violence Prevention Team


What is the Leduc and District Family Violence Prevention Team?
The Leduc and District Family Violence Prevention Team is a partnership of agencies covering Beaumont, Devon, Leduc, and Leduc County whose purpose is to provide education, awareness, and prevention initiatives around the region.
We currently offer a community based program, designed to help build relationships free from violence and abuse. This strength-based series is open to those who commit abusive acts as well as those who are the recipients. In addition, the group provides dollars towards one-on-one counselling sessions for children in these families.
The program runs twice a year for 13 weeks each. The counselling sessions are on an as-needed / as-available basis. Additionally, the group aims to provide education and awareness of family violence prevention through public events, partnerships with schools etc.
Both the counselling and the group sessions are referred via one of the partner FCSS agencies and are available to anyone. Victims of violence do not have to pay for the group sessions and counselling is available at little to no cost, depending on your individual circumstances. Costs for those who are charged with abuse are on a sliding scale.

Family violence can become a way of life, but the pattern can become broken by making healthier choices in your behaviour and relationships. Because it’s not about blame… it’s about change.
