The Support for CALD Fathers grant aims to contribute to a reduction in violence against women and their children by engaging CALD young men and fathers to better understand and appreciate the importance of their current or future role as parents and partners. Applications for the funding are now open.
This grant will provide one-off funding to a single organisation to develop and implement a national strategy targeting young men and fathers from CALD backgrounds, with a particular focus on engaging them through their interactions with existing service providers.
The funded project should provide CALD young men and fathers with evidence-based tools, strategies and knowledge to improve their confidence as both parents and partners in order to develop, maintain and role-model healthy and respectful relationships with family members.
The strategy must be implemented through Commonwealth, state and territory providers who have contact with CALD young men and fathers across migrant resource hubs as well as other CALD-specific services. It is expected that the successful applicant will engage with these providers to build their capacity to engage young men and fathers. This could include materials for distribution to young men and fathers.
