Recognising and responding to domestic and family violence in youth work
The Youth Coalition of the ACT and Relationships Australia Canberra & Region have been funded by the ACT Government Family Safety Hub to develop a training package for frontline youth workers.
This training aims to support youth workers with the knowledge and confidence needed to open a conversation with young people about domestic and family violence. Youth workers are trusted people that young people engage with for support. This training will increase the capacity of youth workers to understand, recognise and respond to DFV issues, safely refer the young person and/or family to specialist DFV services, and continue to support them as they navigate the specialist DFV support system.
We will be running two pilot training sessions in May, and are inviting youth workers to attend the pilot training. You will participate in the full two day training package in order to then provide insight and feedback on the training. This is to ensure that the training meets the needs of the sector
