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 Awareness Sessions.
Brothers Standing Tall
This is a 2-hour interactive presentation on family violence specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait men. The presentation provides a space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait men to learn and talk about family violence and the impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait families, giving the basis to start reflecting on what you can do to prevent family violence in your community.
