The Youth Primary Prevention Grants offered one-off small grants up to $5,000 to youth oriented not for profit community organisations to develop initiatives that build young people’s capacity to address the drivers of domestic, family and sexual violence, and raise awareness of the key related issues.
The funding links to Committed to Safety, the State Government’s framework for achieving a coordinated, targeted series of actions to prevent and respond to domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia. Youth service providers who were successful in getting a grant will receive specialised training from Our Watch about the Change the Story Framework.
Eleven organisations received funding to support activities across metropolitan and regional areas of South Australia. Grants will be delivered from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.
