DFV Work Aware is a program of the Working Women’s Centres of Australia.
Working Women’s Centres provide free and confidential information, advice and advocacy and to women experiencing work-related issues. Working Women’s Centres extend a warm welcome to trans people, gender non-binary people, gender diverse people, intersex people, Brotherboys and Sistergirls.
For over 25 years, Working Women’s Centres have built their understanding of the best and most practical ways to assist workers and their workplaces to respond to domestic and family violence (DFV) when it comes to work. This has led to the development of DFV Work Aware.
The aim of DFV Work Aware program is increase awareness and understanding of DFV as a workplace issue. We take a preventative approach to prepare workplaces to recognise and respond to DFV at work.
DFV Work Aware is delivered across Australia by Working Women’s Centres based in the Northern Territory, Queensland and South Australia.
‘When the situation presents, most people want to help but don’t always know how.. DFV Work Aware training provided a helpful overview on domestic and family violence including DFV in the workplace.’
