DHS provides grants that directly impact young South Australians aged 12–24, support innovative program delivery, and work across government to develop and inform youth policy issues.
Youth Primary Prevention Grants
This program offered one-off small grants up to $5,000 to youth‑orientated not‑for‑profit community organisations to develop initiatives that build young people’s capacity to address the drivers of domestic, family and sexual violence, and raise awareness of the key related issues.
The funding links to Committed to Safety, the State Government’s framework for achieving a coordinated, targeted series of actions to prevent and respond to domestic, family and sexual violence in South Australia. Youth service providers who were successful in getting a grant received specialised training from Our Watch about the Change the Story Framework.
Successful applicants received funding to support activities across metropolitan and regional areas of South Australia. Grants are being delivered from 1 July 2019 to December 2020.
