Recognise, Respond, Refer e-learning program

Everyone has the right to feel safe and supported in the workplace.

In response to recommendation 32 in the Not Now, Not Ever report, the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services partnered with Challenge DV to develop an innovative, online learning program—Recognise, Respond, Refer: Domestic Violence and the Workplace—to raise employee awareness of domestic violence in the workplace.

The e-learning program aims to build workplaces that are supportive to victims of domestic and family violence, and includes developing skills to identify and respond to domestic violence.

Recognise, Respond, Refer was launched in May 2015 and has been rolled out to Queensland Government agencies as part of our commitment to supporting employees affected by domestic violence and promoting a safe, respectful working environment.

We are also supporting Challenge DV to offer the program to private businesses and non-government employers.
