Corporate Domestic Violence awareness campaign

The Corporate DFV Awareness Campaign

Corporate Domestic Violence awareness campaign

In 2022, Barnardos launched the Domestic and Family Violence research report which highlights the impact that DFV has on children. In continuation of this initiative, Barnardos is launching a national awareness campaign to increase awareness of the issue and normalise the conversation.

Domestic and Family Violence continues to be a pandemic and a national issue throughout Australia.

The numbers are staggering.

1 in 3 women

experience physical violence

1 in 4 children

are exposed to domestic violence

1 in 5 workers

experiencing family and domestic violence report the effects of the violence continues in the workplace in Australia

Paid family and domestic violence leave legislation came into effect in February this year. With the increase in technology-enabled coercive control, survivors are increasingly finding that the workplace is one of the few places where they can seek support and access Domestic Violence services.

DV is an issue for all of us, and increasingly so for organisations. Therefore, we are inviting organisations to join our national Corporate Domestic Violence awareness campaign and help us to start normalising the conversation around DV and its long-term impact on women and children.

This initiative is a series of collaborative activities and fundraising events across the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, from the 25th of November to the 10th of December. Association with the campaign provides employee engagement and/or customer-focused messaging supporting corporate CSR activities.
