Funding announced to reduce domestic, family and sexual violence

The Safe, Respected and Free from Violence Prevention Fund has been launched this week.

The funding supports localised projects, including pilot programs, which employ good practice evidence-based prevention and early intervention strategies to break the intergenerational cycle of domestic and family violence.

This year, as part of the Tennant Creek Action Plan, $150 000 was allocated for prevention programs in Tennant Creek. The total funding pool available is $300 000.

The Fund will support community-developed and community led good practice approaches to preventing violence and supporting children and young people to engage in healthy and respectful relationships, including understanding and exercising consent.

Applications close on Monday 11 June and are available from the website.
