DV-alert – Domestic & Family Violence Workshop

Domestic and Family Violence Response Training (DV-alert) is a free national training program designed for health, allied health, educational, childcare and community support frontline workers. By the end of your training, you will confidently:

  • Recognise signs of domestic and family violence.
  • Respond with appropriate care.
  • Refer women and their children subjected at risk of domestic and family violence to appropriate support services.

As a nationally recognised training program, DV-alert workshops and eLearning streams are mapped out against the unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic and Family Violence. Participants who successfully complete the training and assessment will receive a statement of attainment.

Who DV-alert is for

DV-alert is for all community frontline workers in Australia, and is designed to empower participants to be confident first responders when facing issues of domestic and family violence.

Being the first point of contact for women and their children in the community, Lifeline knows the important role that community frontline workers play to those subjected to domestic and family violence. This training ensures that you can effectively engage with and support people –  assisting them to seek appropriate help.

Who is a community frontline worker?

A community frontline worker is any person who provides direct service and support to the community, either as a volunteer or as part of your employment.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following sectors; health/allied health, community leaders, education, childcare, or those in a frontline capacity supporting the community.

Financial support payments are available to assist employers to release staff by way of backfill payments and to assist students to attend a DV-alert two-day workshop if travel and accommodation are required in regional and remote areas.
