  • Specialist grants ranging from $25,000 to $150,000 have been given to 21 community organisations as part of the Safe and Diverse grant program.
  • The grants support culturally and linguistically diverse communities in building awareness of and responding to domestic and family violence.
  • The enhanced funding round will also benefit larger projects driving cultural change and sustained training programs and tailored resources.

Community groups will receive $850,000 in grant funding to support victim-survivors throughout Queensland’s diverse communities and help address, respond and prevent domestic and family violence (DFV).

Under the Miles Government’s Safe and Diverse Communities Grant Program – 21 organisations from as far as Townsville, Cairns, Rockhampton, Maryborough, and Logan through to Gatton and the Gold Coast were successful.

Some successful community organisations provide services and initiatives statewide.

The grant program is a specialist initiative driving cultural change and funding enhanced awareness and prevention initiatives combating DFV in culturally and linguistically diverse communities

This third round of the program included increased investment of $600,000 – allowing even more Queensland community groups and organisations to access grants of up to $25,000 and larger grants of up to $150,000.

To date, 46 grants have been provided to organisations and have received support of more than $1,374,000 from the Safe and Diverse Communities Grants Program, a specialist initiative of the Miles Government.

May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, a time for the Miles Government and DFV sector to continue to shine a light on the services and assistance available from organisations dedicated to helping those in need.
