25 October 2017 –
Each May, Queensland marks Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month to raise community awareness of domestic and family violence and to send a clear message that violence of this sort will not be tolerated.
The Queensland Government provides one-off funding of up to $5,000 to assist community organisations to hold awareness raising events, projects or activities during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May 2018.
Applications are invited for events, project and activities that aim to:
- promote partnerships and collaboration across the community
- raise awareness about the occurrence and impacts of domestic and family violence in the Queensland community and provide information about help available
- engage and educate Queenslanders to create communities that support respectful relationships, practice positive attitudes and behaviours and promote a culture of non-violence
- challenge people to consider their own attitudes towards domestic and family violence and recognise that a whole of community response is needed
- empower family, friends, neighbours and colleagues of victims to take steps they might not otherwise take to respond to domestic and family violence.
Applications can be submitted by visiting SmartyGrants.
Applications close at midday on Friday 10 November 2017.
