We’re here to end domestic and family violence.

Challenge DV has been partnering with organisations since 2001 to educate, advocate and empower people to end domestic and family violence. We do this by providing tailored training solutions and policy services to support your staff.

Our impact

Challenge DV is a social enterprise with a simple vision: to create a world without domestic and family violence.

We make an impact by educating workplaces on the signs of domestic and family violence, partnering with organisations that share our vision to create change, and uniting the community through powerful events and advocacy.
