The Andrews Labor Government is working to end the scourge of family violence and violence against women with a new package of more than $6.3 million in funding for prevention partnerships.
Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence Natalie Hutchins today announced details of the Free from Violence Fund, which will support creative and innovative family violence prevention activities.
The $1.75 million fund will support community groups to trial and evaluate new approaches to violence prevention. This will generate a better understanding of what works to prevent violence across different settings and contexts.
Innovative ideas may include programs not yet tested in Victoria, partnerships with those outside the prevention sector, or significant improvements to existing prevention models.
Successful projects will receive grants of up to $100,000, with applications opening in March.
