Safe Relationships Awareness Project


LGBTI people escaping domestic violence experience compounded disadvantage and marginalisation, social isolation, and multiple legal issues. They are some of the most vulnerable and at-risk people in the NSW.

This CLE project involved the presentation of CLE sessions and the development of training resources regarding how to identify unsafe relationships and working with vulnerable LGBTIQ clients experiencing and escaping DFV, to workers from mainstream and specialist community and government services.

The CLE sessions ran for three to four hours. The CLE sessions were held in locations where there are known LGBTIQ communities and with partner organisations ranging from DV services, health services, LGBTIQ organisations and CLCs.
