DV-alert is for all community frontline workers in Australia, and is designed to empower participants to be confident first responders when facing issues of domestic and family violence.
Being the first point of contact for women and their children in the community, we know the important role that community frontline workers play to those subjected to domestic and family violence. Our training ensures that you can effectively engage with and support people – assisting them to seek appropriate help.
Who is a community frontline worker?
A community frontline worker is any person who provides direct service and support to the community, either as a volunteer or as part of your employment. This includes, but is not limited to, the following sectors health/allied health, community leaders, education, childcare, or in a frontline capacity supporting the community.
Not a community frontline worker?
DV-alert also provides non-accredited awareness sessions to those not working as a community frontline worker, but are interested to know how they can reach out to their family, friends or colleagues subjected to domestic and family violence. Find out more about DV-alert's awareness sessions here.
