NSW Government Tender for Local Support Services for Male DFV Victims

The NSW Government has put out a tender for statewide Local Support Services for Male DFV Victims. The closing date is 5-Sep-2016 at 11:00am. The Government has budgeted $13M over 4 years to fund these groundbreaking Australia-first services.

We are concerned that the organisations best placed to deliver these services will be existing Domestic and Family Violence services that have an extremely poor track record of supporting male victims. What male victims need are service providers who can offer them a professional, sympathetic, male-friendly response that doesn't presume they are perpetrators of violence because they are male.

If anyone is in the position to apply for this tender in their local area, please give it serious consideration.

The documents can be found at tenders.nsw.gov.au/justice/?event=public.rft.show&RFTUUID=6E58A33B-DBC7-F7B2-4DA1A6D1710A4BB2.
