Explanation:
Just an extra word added to what you suggested didn't sound right, but it makes the difference as it gives the idea of the very important support that these networks give!

Explanation:
Anti-violince networks does seem to be quite widely used, but may not necessarily apply to violence against women. "Family violence networks" is more specific.

networks for the prevention of abuse


Explanation:
