What are we doing?

The South Australian Government is working to raise awareness among health professionals about how to best recognise and address domestic, family and sexual violence, and identifying perpetrators and their risk factors.

What is next?

The South Australian Government will also work to raise awareness among professionals in Children’s Centres, preschools and schools, so that teachers, student support services and allied health professionals know how to best recognise and address violence against women and their children, reducing the impact of violence on children and young people in these settings.

What difference will we make?

Raising awareness among health professionals and education professionals will enable workforces to provide trauma-informed support with a focus on safety and recovery to victims/survivors of domestic, family and sexual violence.
