Applications for the Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month Community Grants 2019 will close on 26 October 2018.
One-off funding of up to $5,000 is available to hold awareness raising events, projects or activities during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May 2019 that aim to:
- raise awareness about the occurrence and impacts of domestic and family violence in the Queensland community
- provide information about help available to people affected
- promote partnerships and collaboration across the community to prevent domestic violence
- engage and educate Queenslanders to create a community that supports respectful relationships, practices positive attitudes and behaviours and promotes a culture of non-violence
- challenge Queenslanders to consider their attitudes towards domestic and family violence
- 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, in 2019 the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women is encouraging submissions that focus on domestic and family violence for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or Queer.
Applications close at midday on Friday 26 October 2018 and can be submitted by visiting SmartyGrants.
