DV Alert

DV-alert is a free and nationally recognised training program with training and assessment delivered by Lifeline Australia and approved third parties on behalf of Lifeline Australia (RTO 88036). The program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services as a key initiative under the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032.

DV-alert is led by experienced trainers dedicated to ending violence against women and children. Our workshops provide a safe space for frontline workers to learn, connect and be empowered to recognise and respond confidently to those in crisis.

Our workshops are open to all frontline workers in Australia. This includes people who provide direct service and support, either paid or unpaid, to the community in sectors like health, allied health, education, childcare

Frontline workers will learn how to:


the signs of domestic and family violence


confidently with appropriate care


Women and their children to appropriate support services

Presenters were absolutely incredible. Created a great space to learn and conveyed all information in a very effective way. I will leave this workshop knowing so much more about this area.


The DV-alert program is fully funded by the Department of Social Services. Eligible participants can attend the training without cost. The two-day programs are designed for frontline workers who provide direct support to the community.  

We can provide workshops on a fee-for-service basis for organisations that sit outside of the funding arrangements of the program.
