DV-alert is free, nationally accredited training to help frontline workers recognise the signs of domestic and family violence and know what to do next.
Frontline workers hold a unique position of trust in the community and may be the first to see the signs.
Why DV-alert?
DV-alert is led by experienced trainers dedicated to reducing violence against women and their children. Our workshops provide a safe space for frontline workers to learn, connect and be empowered to recognise and respond confidently to those in crisis.
Funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Go to www.dss.gov.au for more information.
