More Support for Women on Temporary Visas
Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) have set up the Safe Landing Project, which is an integrated service delivery model responding to women on temporary visas who are experiencing family violence in Melbourne’s northwest.
Working collaboratively with family violence services, police and courts, the Safe Landing Project provides wrap-around, culturally sensitive, and appropriate family violence and migration legal services to streamline safety pathways for highly vulnerable women and children.
Eligible clients include women who are on partner visas, and women on other forms of temporary visas such as student or visitor visas, who live in City of Hume, Moreland and Mitchell Shire, and are experiencing or have experienced family violence.
For more information and a referral form, workers (only) can contact Yoko Kamada at 0491 086 3535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Safe Landing Project follows on from the piloted Indian Women’s Family Violence Project. The Project developed a model of integrated legal, migration and family violence support, combined with community education and engagement for migrant women from India.
