Be empowered to act. From public awareness to specialist workshops for frontline workers, our free training program is about recognising the signs of domestic and family violence, and knowing what to do next.
Since 2007, Lifeline Australia has been delivering DV-alert (formerly DiVeRT) across Australia, including in remote and rural locations. We reach a wide range of people - from the general public to frontline workers - who need to understand the complexities of domestic and family violence.
Learn the signs of domestic and family violence in our DV-aware workshops. Understand the basics and what you can do to help improve the safety of colleagues, friends or family.
Did you know, people experiencing domestic or family violence are more likely to disclose it to people outside the specialist system?
With DV-alert training, you can recognise the signs and know what to do next. Our established program includes public awareness workshops and nationally accredited training to help frontline workers support women and children in Australia.
I must say the course was absolutely fantastic and I gained a huge amount of knowledge around domestic violence.
