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 frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia through a range of workshops.
