Partners in Business and Policy

“Every dollar invested in prevention not only changes the lives of individuals, but also saves literally hundreds of dollars in the costs associated with future violence. However, public funding is very limited and the number of community-based organizations receiving any of these funds is also limited. Supporting opportunities for communities to work together and raising private dollars is essential - to benefit the health and wellbeing of everyone.” 
(Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Action Alliance, 2013)

Designed to support the engagement of partners in business and policy, this section explains what we mean by prevention and who is carrying it through, how investing in prevention offers a beneficial return, and offers successful models from which to draw.
