Women's Safety Grants (ACT)

CLOSED

ACT Women’s Safety Grants are to support innovative projects to advance the following priorities identified in the Third Action Plan under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022:

Prevention and Early Intervention

This category is for targeted early intervention programs or projects for children and young people at risk of becoming involved in violence as adults, including children who have been exposed to domestic violence. It aims to drive changes in the culture, behaviour and attitudes which lead to violence against women and their children.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their children

This category is for projects or initiatives that target addressing family violence among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children. The aim is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women by developing culturally appropriate policy, programs and primary prevention activities, delivered in partnership with their communities.

Greater support and choice

This category is for projects or initiatives that target diverse and complex experiences of violence for women who may already face barriers to seeking help such as newly arrived migrant women, women with a disability, women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. It aims to offer support to these groups by offering pathways of support which prioritise safety, minimise disruption in their lives, provide appropriate assistance and enable choice.

Sexual violence

This category is aimed at enhancing responses and strategies developed to assist women and children who experience sexual violence.

Responding to children living with violence

This category is for projects or initiatives that target child protection and respond to domestic and family violence, ensuring that the systems which protect children are not used to further victimise women who are living with violence. It aims to protect children, respond to the needs of children, provide a safe environment and take effective action to reduce the impact of violence against children

Keeping perpetrators accountable across all systems

This category is for projects or initiatives that focus on targeting and influencing perpetrator behaviour and supporting behavioural change, and which facilitate more consistent and effective perpetrator interventions being used across all jurisdictions.

A copy of the Third Action Plan under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 is available on the Australian Government website.
