Facilitator Challenge DV


At Challenge DV, our vision is to create a world without domestic and family violence.

We have been partnering with Australian businesses since 2001 to educate, advocate and empower people to end domestic and family violence. We do this through market-leading workplace programs, impactful strategic partnerships and powerful events and advocacy that unite a community no longer able to accept abuse or violence of any form.

Our workplace programs empower businesses to be part of the solution by educating managers and staff to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence and respond appropriately. Our programs are tailored to meet our customers’ unique needs and are offered flexibly, with face-to-face, virtual or eLearning training solutions as required.

Through our strategic partnerships, we connect people and workplaces across government, businesses, charities, frontline services and the community to create change and raise awareness for domestic and family violence prevention. We raise funds through events, such as the Darkness to Daylight challenge, and activities that we reinvest into research and prevention programs that make an impact to workplaces and communities across Australia. 

We are growing rapidly and looking to continue building a dynamic and diverse team of smart and passionate people driven by our purpose: to end domestic and family violence. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
