Domestic and family violence Response Training (DV-alert) is a free national training program designed for health, allied health and community frontline workers. By the end of your training, you will confidently:
signs of domestic and family violence Respond
with appropriate care Refer
women and their children subjected to or at risk of domestic and family violence to appropriate support services
Since 2007, Lifeline Australia RTO 88036 has been delivering DV-alert across Australia including remote and rural locations. DV-alert has since expanded to a wider range of audiences to provide a tailored approach in recognising the complexities of domestic and family violence.
DV-alert is funded by the Department of Social Services and is a key initiative under the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
DV-alert is available in various nationally recognised training streams:
Settlement Services Workshop
Working with Women with Disabilities Workshop
As the DV-alert workshops and E-learning are nationally recognised training, these streams are mapped out against the unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic and Family Violence. Participants who successfully complete the training and assessment will receive a statement of attainment.
