Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Grants 2021

The Queensland Government is committed to a new way of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, families and communities in the spirit of reconciliation to address the causes, prevalence and impacts of domestic and family violence.

Purpose

To achieve a Queensland free from domestic and family violence, all actions under Queensland’s Framework for Action: Reshaping our approach to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander domestic and family violence – Implementation Plan 2019-21 (Implementation Plan) are underpinned and guided by three foundational elements from the Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2016-2026 (DFVP Strategy):

  • shifting community attitudes and behaviours
  • enhancing service responses
  • strengthening justice system responses.

To achieve the actions in the Implementation Plan the Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships is supporting communities and services to deliver culturally appropriate support that addresses challenges specific to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and individuals. Place-based responses will be developed in partnership with community, service providers and other appropriate key stakeholders.

To help put ideas into action, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Grants 2021 will enable activities that showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities work to eliminate domestic and family violence.

Objectives

The objectives of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Grants 2021 are to:

  1. Assist and support identified communities to co-design effective localised responses for people in their community experiencing domestic and family violence.
  2. Provide support that builds skill sets in communities to implement localised responses to domestic and family violence.
