Successful recipients of the COVID-19 Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence Infrastructure Grant Program have been announced.
The provision of assistance to services that provide support to victim survivors of sexual, domestic and family violence is more important than ever. Sexual, domestic and family violence can have wide-ranging and long-term effects, which is why support for sexual, domestic and family violence services is a priority for the NSW Government.
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a rise in demand for sexual, domestic and family violence services, and an increase in the complexity of client needs. This makes ensuring the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable, children, young people and families, and protecting them from the risk of harm, abuse and neglect an even bigger challenge for frontline service providers.
The $8 million COVID-19 Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence Infrastructure Grant Program aims to support sexual, domestic and family violence services, including organisations working with perpetrators to respond to the challenges posed by COVID-19.
This grant program supports the NSW Premier’s Priority to reduce domestic violence reoffending, including working with perpetrators and/or victim-survivors and the State Outcome of Children and Families Thrive - Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable, children, young people and families, and protecting them from the risk of harm, abuse and neglect.
