Domestic and Family Violence Prevention in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities Community Grants 2020

14 March, 2020 –

Do you have an idea for a project to raise community awareness of and improve support for people experiencing domestic and family violence (DFV) in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities?

Applications are now open for community grants of up to $5,000 for organisations to run community events, project or activities to be completed by the end of September 2020.

Applications are invited for projects and activities that aim to:

  • build the capability of DFV services to respond appropriately to CALD communities
  • increase the capacity of DFV services to support people impacted by DFV from CALD backgrounds
  • increase availability of translated resources and interpretive services
  • support community leaders to contribute to the prevention of DFV
  • support community responsiveness and working with community resources
  • establish community-led accessible, approachable and appropriate community education that addresses current barriers
  • support people impacted by violence to navigate the legal system.

The community grants support a signature action of the Third Action Plan 2019–20 to 2021–22 of the Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2016–2026 to strengthen the response to address the impact of DFV on Queenslanders from CALD backgrounds.
