About the Hub

Knowledge Hub Logo

In July 2015, The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) announced its investment, “Supporting the Health of Victims of Domestic Violence and Child Abuse through Community Programs”. This initiative supports 18 projects with a trauma- and violence-informed lens to promote the health and wellbeing of adults, youth, and children who have experienced trauma/violence/abuse.

The Knowledge Hub is located at the Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children at Western University. It maximizes the impact of the investment by:

  1. facilitating a national community of practice (CoP) for members of projects funded through the investment to share and enhance learning regarding trauma and violence-informed research and practice through knowledge exchanges, teleconference meetings, working groups, etc.

  2. coordinating knowledge mobilization activities for projects and the broader community through bulletins, reports, social media, videos, infographics, etc.
