Show close time for other time zones
The Australian Government is inviting eligible organisations to apply for up to $4.494 million GST exclusive (across FY2019-20 to FY2021-22) to develop and deliver free training to frontline workers across Australia to better recognise and respond to all people who experience sexual violence. Sexual violence may form part of family and domestic violence or as a standalone form of violence, and requires specific and specialised skills, capabilities and responses from frontline workers. These workforces could also work with clients to provide crisis support or referrals, or assist with recovery.
The Department of Social Services is seeking to engage a consortium partnership to develop and deliver free accredited training for sexual violence responses. The lead organisation (lead applicant) must be a specialist organisation with sexual violence expertise and must demonstrate relationships with other specialist organisations who work with, or represent, people from diverse backgrounds. This training will be developed to have a broad reach across a range of professions that interact with people affected by sexual violence, including both the disability workforce and multicultural workers.
