Domestic and family violence (DFV) and housing and homelessness are intricately linked. Housing can be the reason women stay in abusive relationships, or the reason they return, and homelessness is one of the most common reasons that women seek assistance from specialist homelessness services.
For women and their children escaping domestic and family violence, access to housing that is secure, affordable, and appropriate is the most critical factor in their support pathway.
Real estate professionals are in a prime position to improve outcomes for victims of domestic and family violence. This training will provide you with the opportunity to:
• Increase understanding of domestic and family violence
• Better understand your role in responding to DFV
• Build confidence in responding to tenants impacted by DFV
• Develop an approach to safely sustaining tenancies impacted by DFV
• Understand best practice when starting or ending a tenancy impacted by DFV
• Increase familiarity with supports available to the workforce
This free online training session will be offered on three separate dates with limited ticket numbers per session.
Our meetings are recorded for Q Shelter training and development purposes and are not for distribution.
