DV-alert is a nationally accredited training program delivered by Lifeline Australia (RTO 88036). Our program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services as a key initiative under the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
Since 2007, we have been working to build the knowledge and capability of frontline workers to reduce and prevent domestic and family violence.
DV-alert is led by experienced trainers dedicated to reducing violence against women and their children. Our workshops provide a safe space for frontline workers to learn, connect and be empowered to recognise and respond confidently to those in crisis.
Who DV-alert is for
Our DV-aware workshops are for the general public. Our accredited 2-day face to face workshops, 3-day virtual workshops and eLearning courses plus our specialist 1-day workshops are for frontline workers.
This includes people who provide direct services and support to the community (paid or unpaid) in sectors like health, allied health, education, childcare and community.
These frontline workers don’t have roles that relate directly to domestic and family violence, but may come into contact with people who are experiencing it.
