Abstract

‘Whole of government’ interventions are increasingly being used in disadvantaged communities to improve safety and break the cycle of violence. This paper draws on learning from the evaluation of two whole of government interventions in western Sydney that arose in response to community violence and extensive property damage. Methods for strengthening program logic and overcoming differences in perspective are outlined.
