Centred and informed by the experiences of victim-survivors and highly responsive to the needs and demands of both the family violence and multicultural sectors, inTouch’s Sector and Community team works in the following key areas-
inTouch offers a comprehensive suite of evidence-based training that can be tailored to fit the needs of organisations we work with. Our training focuses on subjects relevant to early career practitioners, like intersectionality and culturally responsive practice, through to more complex issues like migration abuse and curated policy discussions informed by collaboration with our expert team.
inTouch builds the capacity of community organisations, workforces and the broader family violence system to engage in inclusive, safe and accountable response and prevention practices. We do this through needs-based, bespoke projects and programs, community of practice meetings with multicultural services workers and our expert co-case management model, which facilitates organisations working in tandem- producing a safe and culturally appropriate outcome for clients.
Pivotal to the work of inTouch is the lived experience of migrant and refugee women who have experienced family violence. NOOR(link) is a group of inTouch former clients, who hail from multiple cultural, religious and working backgrounds and inform policy and program development- driving change across communities, sector and service delivery.
inTouch’s inSpire initiative is a critical and unique program that provides support to women from migrant and refugee backgrounds who are recovering from family violence. Designed by and for migrant and refugee women who have experienced family violence, inSpire focuses on community and social connection and financial independence.
Our partnerships with the community extend to facilitating therapeutic recovery. These groups,(link) centred in our in-Language, in-Culture delivery model, work closely with our partners to facilitate a continuum of care- recognising that combining skills and knowledge results in positive outcomes for participants.
