Supporting women experiencing violence workshop

Event Name Supporting women experiencing violence workshop
Start Date 16th Jul 2019 10:00am
End Date 16th Jul 2019 2:00pm
Duration 4 hours
Description

The MuSeS (Multicultural and Settlement services Supporting women experiencing violence) research project aims to develop an in-depth understanding of the current and potential role of settlement and multicultural services in supporting immigrant and refugee women experiencing violence. This project is being conducted by researchers at the University of Melbourne, the University of Tasmania, Flinders University and at the Multicultural Centre for Women's Health, in partnership with community organisations.

MuSeS will run throughout 2018-2019 in Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia and has been funded by Australia's National Research Organisation for Women's Safety (ANROWS).

The MuSeS research team would like you to participate in a workshop to disseminate our key findings and further discuss the issues experienced by the settlement and multicultural sectors in supporting women experiencing violence.

At this workshop we will share our findings and collected data, and discuss the implications of our findings for organisations operating in Tasmania. Your knowledge and insight on working with migrant and refugee communities, including people seeking asylum and on temporary visas, would  be invaluable to our discussions and we would be delighted if you are able to attend.

The workshop agenda will be circulated on 10 July 2019.
