Learn to recognise the signs of domestic violence, respond appropriately and refer the case if necessary.
Settlement DV-alert workshops are for settlement services sector supporting refugee / humanitarian communities in Australia. 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 experiencing violence. DV-alert aims to build the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia.
To be eligible to attend, participants must work or volunteer in the settlement services sector supporting refugee / humanitarian communities in Australia
Settlement Workshops involve attending a two-day practical workshop where you'll learn how to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, how to respond to someone experiencing domestic and family violence and what best practice methods should be used to refer people on to the most appropriate support service.
