About the CRE Agreement

The City of Greater Geraldton, has joined forces with many other local businesses to support and implement Desert Blue Connect’s Community, Respect and Equality (CRE) Agreement. The CRE Agreement is for organisations & businesses in Geraldton to collectively say #ViolenceIsNeverOk in our community.

Family violence is seen as a key social and health issue and prevention is vital. By adopting this initiative, the City has made a pledge to take action to prevent family violence.

Supporting employees who are experiencing family violence by providing assistance and referrals if we notice something not right, will hopefully ensure we create a culture where employees are confident to call out disrespect, sexism, harassment or violence.

The CRE values and codes of behaviours have been endorsed internally at the City and we believe it is important for us to generate awareness around the issue and this campaign.
