Funding to run groups for women and children experiencing family violence in the West
Womens Health West is looking for organisations interested in running groups for women and children experiencing family violence.
WESTERN INTEGRATED FAMILY VIOLENCE PARTNERSHIP SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
for Delivery of Group Work Support and Recovery (Brokerage) Services in the Western Region
SECTION 1: Objectives of the Group Work Model
The Western Integrated Family Violence Partnership (WIFVP) have developed a brokerage model for the provision of group work support and recovery programs to women and children who have experienced family violence.
This brokerage model provides opportunities for all FV group work support and recovery service providers to submit proposals for service delivery. It is intended to:
• foster collaborative partnering between agencies outside the core WIFVP Governance Group,
• increase access to services for a range of disadvantaged groups who previously have been unable to access appropriate group work support programs i.e. CALD, Indigenous, Disability etc.
• promote innovative and creative approaches to the provision of supportive groups
• Promote excellence in service provision
• Provide a flexible response to new and emerging needs for group work support and recovery
• provide continuity of funding for established groups
SECTION 2: The Submission Cycle
Agencies can apply for funding under this service component for the 2010 - 2012 financial periods as outlined in the guidelines. Funding is for a one or two year period. Funding for group work is open to any agency or partnership of agencies who can demonstrate an interest in the needs of women and children who have experienced family violence.
The WIFVP will call for submissions via an advertising process in April 2010. Organisations will have a four week period in which to develop and submit their proposals. The closing date for all submissions will be COB 17 May 2010.
The WIFVP will nominate a selection (review) panel that will consider the merit of each application and make recommendations to the governance group regarding the allocation of funding.
The successful agencies will be contacted and informed in writing before the end of June 2010. The unsuccessful agencies will also be informed in writing in this period.
Each successful agency will then enter into a signed contractual agreement (MOU) with Women's Health West (WHW) for this service component regarding the delivery of services, staff, reporting and receipt of funding
