Description:

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the program from 2023–24 to 2025–26.  

Community-led Prevention Services, Programs and Campaigns for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children is a program funding prevention services, programs and campaigns for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, including on-Country learning.

To break the cycle of violence, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people must be provided with opportunities to heal from their experiences of violence, and to address their own use of problematic and harmful family, domestic or sexual behaviours in holistic ways that incorporate values from culture that drive behaviour change.

This program is a measure in the Commonwealth Implementation Plan under the National Agreement on Closing the Gap (Closing the Gap) to achieve Target 13: By 2031, the rate of all forms of family violence and abuse against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children is reduced at least by 50%, as progress towards zero.

Activities under this program will be designed, led, delivered and evaluated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to share decision-making authority with governments and contribute to building the Aboriginal Community Controlled sector.
