Request for Proposal: Australian LGBTIQA+ organisation partner for new primary prevention project

Our Watch is seeking to partner with an individual LGBTIQA+ organisation or consortium with national reach to develop a new national primary prevention framework.

Through funding received from the Commonwealth Government Department of Social Services, Our Watch will lead the development of a new national primary prevention framework in partnership with a LGBTIQA+ organisation, to deepen understanding of the drivers of gender-based violence against LGBTIQA+ people and communities. This new framework will build upon and expand the existing evidence base to help guide prevention work at a national level.

This new framework will take an intersectional approach, recognising that heteronormativity and cisnormativity are core drivers of violence against LGBTIQA+ people alongside gender inequality, racism, ableism, and ageism.

While we are currently seeking a lead partner for the project, we intend to engage with LGBTIQA+ organisations and other key stakeholders through Project Advisory Group/s and a national consultation in 2024. If you would be interested in future engagement with the project, please get in touch with the project team at innovation.projects@ourwatch.org.au.
