inTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence (inTouch) provides person-centred, integrated and culturally responsive family violence services to people from migrant and refugee communities across Victoria. We have assisted over 20,000 women and children experiencing family violence throughout our 38 years of operation, providing a holistic service that centres the experiences of victim-survivors in everything we do.
inTouch works across the family violence continuum, providing culturally informed early intervention, case management, programs for men who use violence, legal advice, crisis recovery and enhanced capacity-building across the sector and community. We are proud to provide high-level leadership and guidance to all levels of government with our evidence-based, victim-survivor informed advocacy and policy work.
inTouch also recognises that for men who use violence against women and children it is difficult to find support that is culturally relevant and appropriate. inTouch aims to provide responses for men to be held to account for their use of violence towards family members and be exposed to non-violent ways of behaving and relating.
We are seeking a skilled group facilitator to join the Motivation for Change program. This is a great opportunity for an experienced individual who is passionate about contributing to the safety of women and children experiencing family violence through perpetrator interventions.

You will be supported to grow, learn and develop your skills to reach your potential.
