Burndawan (safe)

Project Details

We are working with the Wadawurrung community in Victoria using co-design to inform the development of an online Indigenous family violence resource. Interviews were undertaken with 23 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and men from Wadawurrung country to determine the barriers they face when help-seeking, how they feel about the potential for an online resource and to identify their basic needs in a resource. This project supports early engagement with families nd has the potential to improve awareness, safety planning and help-seeking behaviours for Indigenous peoples experiencing family violence in the Wadawurrung community which could improve health outcomes for these peoples.
