Code of Conduct – VERY POWERFUL
15min Short Documentary
The Tackling Violence campaign is a community education, early intervention and prevention programme that uses strong local leadership, regional rugby league clubs and NRL stars to promote anti-domestic violence messages in regional communities.
There are four components of the Tackling Violence programme. In recognition for sponsorship: clubs sign a code of conduct that penalises players and officials for any domestic violence offences, community service announcements featuring players are broadcast on local commercial TV; all clubs attend a domestic violence workshop delivered by Tackling Violence Educators and a high school program raising awareness of domestic violence and encouraging healthy relationships is delivered to local students.
Code of Conduct – VERY POWERFUL features former NRL players and domestic violence ambassadors, David Peachey (Cronulla Sharks & South Sydney Rabbitohs) Alan Tongue (Canberra Raiders) Nathan Merrit (South Sydney Rabbitohs) and Clint Newton (Melbourne Storm & Newcastle Knights)
