Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing (GDFW) Project

The Gender, Disaster and Financial Wellbeing Project is developing free two-part gender responsiveness training for Victorian financial capability workers and financial counsellors in bushfire and other disaster affected areas throughout 2021. 

The training will focus on providing an increased awareness of intersecting barriers to economic security for women before, during and after disasters such as bushfire, and what workers can do to address these barriers in gender sensitive, strengths-based and trauma-informed ways. 

This training has been developed in consultation with both impacted women and financial counsellors and capability workers in affected areas.

See upcoming training events here.

This project is funded by the Office for Women (Department of Families, Fairness and Housing), through Bushfire Recovery Victoria.
