About Championing Action for Tech Safety (CATS)

Preventing Tech-based Abuse of Women

SSI has successfully tendered for funding through the Preventing Tech-based Abuse of Women Grants Program (funded by the eSafety Commissioner).  This program contributes to the Federal Government’s National Plan to End Violence Against Women and Children 2022-32 (the National Plan).

SSI will work to address tech-safety and tech-based abuse in the context of Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) by increasing the understanding and knowledge of women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds on tech-based safety and abuse.  SSI will also focus efforts on newer arrivals, and those who have arrived as refugees.

How this works

The project will work to:

  • increase the understanding of tech-based abuse and tech safety among migrant and refugee women and their children who may also be a target for tech-based abuse in the context of DFV,
  • Increase conversations among migrant and refugee women on tech-based abuse and tech safety,
  • Increase practical knowledge on how to identify spyware, tracking apps and clearing cache information, and
  • Increasing the digital literacy of women participating in co-design and community education workshops.
