2015 Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month community grants

Organisations are invited to apply for one-off funding of up to $3000 to hold awareness raising activities or events during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May 2015.

The community grants support and promote the Queensland Government’s Make the call social marketing campaign.

Applications are invited for activities or events that aim to:

  • raise awareness about domestic and family violence in the Queensland community
  • raise awareness about who is affected by domestic and family violence, the nature of this violence, including non-physical forms of abuse and its impacts
  • encourage Queenslanders to challenge their level of acceptance of domestic and family violence and to see it as a social issue that requires a whole-of-community response
  • empower family, friends, neighbours and colleagues of victims to take steps they might not otherwise take to respond to domestic and family violence
  • encourage people directly affected by domestic and family violence to seek help.

For more information about the community grants contact the Violence Prevention Team on 3224 4477 or via email at
