Do you have an idea for an event, activity or project to raise community awareness and help prevent domestic and family violence?

Applications are now open for community grants of up to $5,000 to hold events, projects and activities during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May 2019.

Applications are invited for events, projects and activities that aim to:

  • raise awareness about the occurrence and impacts of domestic and family violence in the Queensland community
  • provide information about help available
  • promote partnerships and collaboration across the community
  • engage and educate Queenslanders to create a community that supports respectful relationships, promotes positive attitudes and behaviours and a culture of non-violence
  • challenge Queenslanders to consider their attitudes towards domestic and family violence and empower family, friends, neighbours and colleagues of victims to take steps they might not otherwise take to respond to domestic and family violence.

While domestic and family violence impacts every community, the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women is encouraging applications for events, projects or activities that target people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex or Queer.

To find out more about the grants and how to apply visit the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women website.

Applications close at 12pm on 26 October 2018.
