Men's support services in Indigenous communities
The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services is seeking submissions for the delivery of services to reduce alcohol-related harm in the communities of Doomadgee, Mornington Island, Kowanyama, Lockhart River, Mapoon, Napranum, Northern Peninsula Area, Pormpuraaw, Wujal Wujal and Yarrabah.
Funding of $115,000 per annum for three years is available to organisations to provide personal support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men affected by alcohol and violence, including men who are perpetrators of domestic and family violence. Organisations will also be able to apply for additional funds of up to $106 000 per annum to provide specialist programs and services to complement community-based service delivery.
Organisations are invited to submit innovative service delivery responses which could include service provider partnerships and incorporate a range of activities, including face-to-face counselling and group work. Responses need to support men’s healing and wellbeing, build self-reliance and coping skills, and improve the safety and wellbeing of their families and communities.
Submissions can be lodged via the online application form.
For enquiries, please contact the Community Services Investment Management team on (07) 3224 8050.
