Applications are now open for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities Leading Prevention Grants. These grants offer funding for organisations to develop and implement locally-led solutions to drive long term, sustainable changes in community awareness, attitudes and behaviours in order to reduce violence against women and their children in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities.
This one-off non-ongoing funding is intended to help organisations develop and implement CALD community-owned and driven strategies. Organisations should have the influence and cultural capital required to drive work to address domestic and family violence issues that exist within their communities. Projects should address an identified need within the specified community, and have strong community investment and ownership to help achieve sustainable change beyond the life of the project itself.
The funded solutions may involve, but are not limited to, activities that address complex forms of violence such as female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriage and human trafficking.
Activities may be targeted to support a particular cultural or religious community and/or within a specific geographic location or area.
Applications close: 25 May 2017
