What is included?

CHCDFV001 – Recognise and Respond to Domestic and Family Violence

Lifeline South Coast on behalf of Lifeline Australia RTO 88036 delivers DV-alert, Lifeline’s free nationally recognised training program that enables health, allied health and frontline workers to confidently:

  • RECOGNISE signs of domestic and family violence
  • RESPOND with appropriate care
  • REFER affected individuals and families to relevant support services

Since 2007, Lifeline has been delivering DV-alert (previously known as DiVeRT) in different parts of Australia including remote and rural locations. Since it was first developed, DV-alert has expanded to wider range of audiences to provide a more tailored approach that recognises the complexities of domestic and family violence as an issue.

DV-alert is funded by the Department of Social Services and is supported to contribute to one of the outcomes of the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022 – services meet the needs of women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.
