Description:

The Australian Government has committed $2.472 million GST exclusive (across FY2019–20 to FY2021–22) to develop and deliver primary prevention activities that encourage men to be positive role models. This grant is funded under the Fourth Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 (National Plan).

Preventing violence before it occurs is the foundation of the Fourth Action Plan. Organisations are invited to apply for funding to deliver innovative primary prevention activities that involve men as positive role models to drive changes in the behaviours and attitudes that contribute to violence against women and children. These activities will involve men to challenge the underlying social, economic and political conditions, as well as historical and cultural factors that allow violence, supportive attitudes and behaviours to thrive.

The department is seeking applications from specialist organisations, or consortium partnerships led by specialist organisations, with other relevant organisations. For the purposes of this grant opportunity, a specialist organisation is an organisation with expertise in family, domestic or sexual violence, gender equality or primary prevention.

Preference will be given to applications that demonstrate existing strong relationships with their target groups or communities, or partnerships with organisations representing those groups or communities.
