Government program to slow spread of COVID-19 in multicultural communities

Applications are open for funding to support organisations to adequately respond to the current health crisis. Specifically aimed at multicultural and faith communities, phase 2 of the Victorian State Government scheme aims to help organisations with a focus on supporting communities most in need, and is a response to the disproportionate challenges experienced by CALD women and young people, and new and emerging communities. It also promotes capacity building for local community networks and organisations.

Applications for funding through the Priority Response to Multicultural Communities during Coronavirus (COVID-19) close on Friday 28 May 2021 or until funds are exhausted, whichever occurs first.

Faith communities unite: NO to family violence and violence against women

Preventing and responding to family violence requires action from all sectors of society, including faith communities. In particular, faith leaders play an important role in raising awareness on family violence and violence against women, and emphasising equality and respect toward women.

FaithSAFE is an online resource designed to assist faith communities to take a primary prevention approach to the issue of family violence and violence against women. It was created by the Faith Communities Council of Victoria, Victoria’s umbrella multi-faith body.
