Toward a Safe Place
The Toward A Safe Place project aimed to increase awareness, information and training about LGBTIQA+ people’s experiences of domestic and family violence.
Catalyst Foundation, in partnership with Bfriend (Uniting Communities) and Pride of the South created a booklet and services flyer for LGBTIQA+ communities to find information about the issue of domestic and family violence and where they can get support in South Australia.
We have worked closely with LGBTIQA+ communities to develop these resources and are thankful for the help and support of our Steering Committee comprising individuals, community organisations and service providers who have helped us in the development of these resources.
Catalyst Foundation continues to offer ‘Toward A Safe Place’ professional development training to organisations wanting to improve their work with LGBTIQA+ people who are experiencing domestic and family violence. This training was developed with our project partners, BFriend and Pride of the South, and a Steering Committee of relevant health and community organisations. For more information, see our training flyer here.
If your organisation would like information on the training please contact Shaez Mortimer, the LGBTIQA+ Project Officer on (08) 8168 8776 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The project was supported by South Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department, Bfriend (Uniting Communities), Pride of the South and the Toward a Safe Place Steering Committee. Members of the steering committee currently represent the following organisations: Women’s Safety Services SA, Victim Support Service, Relationships Australia, private practitioners, Uniting Communities & Pride of the South.
