Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge announced the funding on Friday.

“The projects are funded through the 2014-15 Indigenous Family Violence Community Initiative Fund and support the Indigenous Family Violence Strategy, a community-led initiative that aims to prevent, reduce and respond to family violence in Aboriginal communities,” she said.

“I am delighted to announce 38 projects across Victoria will benefit from funding of up to $37,000 for innovative ways to prevent and raise awareness of family violence in the local Indigenous community.”

The Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention and Legal Service Victoria will receive $13,000 for its Sisters Day Out workshop in Horsham.

The workshops support women to be prepared for incidents of family violence by being aware of their rights, knowing points of contact for help and knowing people who can provide ongoing support.

Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative will receive $10,000 towards the Wimmera DRUMBEAT – Discovering Relationship Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts – program.

The program combines the therapeutic potential of musical expression with basic cognitive behavioural therapy to deliver a range of social learning outcomes, including emotional control, improved relationships and increased self-esteem.

Goolum Goolum will also receive $2075 on behalf of the Indigenous Family Violence Regional Action Group for the VACSAL Junior Football and Netball Carnival.

The Wurega Aboriginal Corporation – which includes Horsham Rural City, Northern Grampians, Hindmarsh, City of Ballarat, Pyrenees, Ararat Rural City, Yarriambiack, West Wimmera, Golden Plains, Hepburn and Moorabool municipalities – has received $5000 for its Strong Families T20 Blast program.

The project will use Aboriginal community engagement principles to focus on the T20 Blast program to prevent Aboriginal family violence from occurring during the summer months.
