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 front line workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia through a range of workshops.
Participants marked competent will receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency CHCDFV001 – Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic and Family Violence apart from all the other benefits.
Designed for health, allied health and community frontline workers supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The Indigenous DV-Alert workshop enables participants to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, respond appropriately and refer the case if necessary in these communities.
