Hala Abdelnour, a family violence practitioner with specialist knowledge on working with male perpetrators and culturally diverse communities, is running a series of consultation sessions with CALD / ethno-specific and family violence services working with CALD perpetrators of family violence to identify gaps in service delivery and support required.
The project seeks to identify:
- How many CALD perpetrators of family violence are accessing your service for support?
- How many of these perpetrators, or their families, are engaged with mainstream family violence services and what gaps in service delivery are they facing?
- What support are you able to offer CALD perpetrators?
- What gaps have you identified that we might be able to support you with? For example, staff training specific to working with perpetrators, links to mainstream, etc.
This project is funded by the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) and will help build a case for future support int his area.
