One of the priorities of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children is to ensure that services meet the needs of women and children subjected to domestic and family violence. DV-alert builds the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia through a range of workshops.

The best aspects of the training were..."the resources, that is; the workbook, videos, stories, presentation and the presenters. (My confidence has increased to) recognise the signs of DFV, being able to respond appropriately and provide appropriate referral services if consented. An excellent course, honestly one of the best I’ve attended. Thank you so much!’
