Grants available for 2016 Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month activities

Grants available for 2016 Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month activities
Community organisations across Queensland are being urged to apply for grants to run activities and events during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May next year.

Minister for Women and Communities, Shannon Fentiman, said grants of up to $3,000 are on offer for community activities to raise awareness and help prevent domestic and family violence.

“This is about getting the whole community to come together, stand up and say ‘enough is enough’ to domestic and family violence,” Ms Fentiman said.

“We’ve increased the funding for grants available this year to $150,000 and I’m keen to see as many Queenslanders as possible get involved. 

“Organisations can host their own events, or form partnerships with other local community leaders, organisations or businesses to jointly run an event or activity. 

“The Queensland Government is determined to do all we can to stop this violence. This includes increasing penalties for offenders, two new crisis shelters, the new Domestic Violence Court at Southport, extra services and support for victims.

“But Government can only do so much and we need the whole community to get involved in tackling this scourge on our state. Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is an important way to raise awareness and challenge the attitudes that underpin violence.”

Applications for the grants are open until 12pm on Friday 13th November. To apply for Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month 2016 grants, visit www.communities.qld.gov.au/

Activities held during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month this year included community fun days, awareness raising sporting events, training to promote community and workplace action on domestic and family violence, and an art exhibition to promote respectful and healthy relationships in primary schools.

For help in dealing with domestic and family violence, call the state-wide DVConnect Womensline on 1800 811 811 or DVConnect Mensline on 1800 600 636.
