Father Focus Program - inTouch

Father Focus Project

Working with Kildonan, Uniting Care and Hume City Council we are delivering the Father Focus project aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable families and the development of young children, by paying special attention to supporting and in particular fathers. The project focuses on building the capacity of fathers to play a pivotal role in providing a safe environment for their children and to increase protective factors for vulnerable children.

Health Justice Partnership Project

Health Justice Partnership Project

Population diversity and the projected growth in the numbers of newly arrived migrants and refugees was the impetus to design our inLanguage, inCulture: Integrated Model of Support for CALD Women Experiencing Family Violence project for the City of Greater Dandenong, one of the most diverse local government areas in Australia.

Known in Australia as the Health Justice Partnership model, the project is based on a healthcare model that integrates legal assistance as a vital component of healthcare and is only one of eight projects funded in Victoria by the Legal Services Board.

Early identification and the provision of a direct referral pathway from health professionals to an onsite legal service has the capacity to improve health outcome, safety and wellbeing of a group who would otherwise slip through the gaps of the service system.
