Project Description

The objective of this grant opportunity is to build capability and capacity of the
service system by training frontline workers to better recognise and respond to all
people who experience sexual violence. Frontline workers receive disclosures of
sexual assault; however, many are not adequately trained to respond appropriately
to people who disclose. Sexual violence may form part of family and domestic violence or as a standalone form of violence, and requires specific and specialised skills, capabilities and responses from frontline workers. These workforces could also work with clients to provide crisis support or referrals, or assist with recovery.
