The Department of Communities has appointed the Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Centre and the Langford Aboriginal Association to deliver projects that aim to improve the provision of culturally appropriate family and domestic violence support services in Western Australia.

They have received funding to:

  • improve service pathways and reduce barriers to access support services for women and children from Aboriginal and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) backgrounds who experience family and domestic violence
  • provide training to increase competency levels for professionals, including the media, who are likely to come into contact with potential
  • or possible CaLD victims of family and domestic violence, and
  • build the capacity of community leaders and elders in WA’s Aboriginal and CaLD communities to help address family and domestic violence.

This project is also supported by Royalties for Regions.
