DV-aware Workplace Training (2-hours)

In this awareness workshop, participants will learn what domestic and family violence is and how to recognise the signs.


Delivery: 2 hours via face-to-face classroom or virtually via Zoom

Audience: Anyone, 18 years +

Whether to support frontline workers and those working in various industries with people impacted by domestic and family violence, or to uphold the health and safety of their own staff, employers have a responsibility to recognise domestic and family violence as a workplace issue. Studies have shown that:

  • 1/4 women and 1/13 men in Australia will experience some form of domestic and family violence in their lifetime
  • 2/3 of women who are experiencing domestic and family violence are in the workforce, and it can be assumed that there are a many people in the workplace who use violent, abusive, and coercive behaviour
  • Domestic and family violence impacts on the wellbeing, safety, and performance of staff.

This short, 2-hour awareness workshop supports employers to create a healthy workplace culture that helps to prevent domestic and family violence, in a time efficient way.
