Everyone should feel safe in their own home. While people from a migrant background are less likely to report domestic violence, they often face more barriers in accessing appropriate support.
We work alongside individuals and service providers to help ensure support is provided at the right time, in the right place, and in the right way.
Funded through a philanthropic donation by D’Orsogna, our domestic violence counseling and support services are free for people to use.
Currently not taking new referrals.
Family domestic violence is the leading health risk factor for women under the age of 45.
Change the Story is a community-driven initiative to change attitudes toward violence and gender equality. We work with men and women from migrant and refugee backgrounds in the Cockburn area to help:
- Build a better understanding of the issue in communities
- Build community support for individuals and families impacted, and
- Reduce barriers to accessing support
Funded through support by the caregivers at St. John of God Murdoch Hospital.
UnitingCare West is a proud partner of Multicultural Futures. Knowing that we can depend on the team to readily collaborate and walk alongside us to support people who need our combined skills and abilities in order to have their goals met is, quite simply, fantastic.
Access Housing and Multicultural Futures have a well-established, collaborative working relationship going back many years. We look forward to continuing and building upon this relationship into the years ahead as we partner to assist some of the community’s most vulnerable people.
We rely heavily on the support of agencies and programs such as Multicultural Futures in order to ensure best outcomes and recovery for people. The contribution of this flexible and culturally sensitive agency is a partnership that we will continue to build and foster.
With help from Multicultural Futures, we now stand on our own feet and by paying tax hopefully, we can give the opportunity for another family to make change for a more peaceful and prosperous life.
We highly valued Multicultural Futures’ contribution to developing our first Cultural Diversity Strategy. They brought a wealth of cultural insight and strong community connections with newly settled Cockburn community members which ensured a rich diversity of views were captured.
