Funder: NSW – Women
Grant Background: The NSW Government supports the prevention of domestic and family violence at the local level by providing annual grants to Local Domestic and Family Violence Committees across the state.
Projects the NSW Government is looking to fund:
- promotional events for awareness of domestic and family violence. Past successful community events have included walks, candlelight vigils, and community information days;
- projects that reinforce messages about positive behaviours and social norms rejecting violence against women,
- collaborations with local groups, organisations – including men’s organisations – and schools in leading efforts for change, and
- educational and awareness raising resources, print information booklets, promotional brochures and posters about domestic and family violence and/or local services.
