Koori Grants announcement event

Strong Men, Strong Communities Project

Lead agency: Lakes Entrance Aboriginal Health Association

This project is working with Aboriginal men in six towns across East Gippsland to prevent all forms of family and community violence. It aims to increase the safety of families and communities by building the capacity of Aboriginal men to choose alternatives to violence and by providing opportunities for men to become leaders and mentors.

Family and Community Violence Prevention

Lead agency: Mildura Aboriginal Corporation

This project aims to create a large network of Kooris who have an increased capacity to deal with issues that compromise their safety. The project will achieve this by providing a range of gender specific activities, with some activities based on proven projects and others being developed as part of this project.

Aboriginal Family Violence Harmony Project

This project is providing a series of activities that promote anti-violence prevention for Aboriginal communities in the Greater Shepparton area. Some activities will be gender and age specific, while others will involve families or all participants coming together.

Strong Relationships, Strong Community Project

Lead agency: Victorian Aboriginal Health Service

This project aims to increase understanding of violence, provide skill development that increases community safety, and increase Koori community participation in mediation services.
