Safe Project – Prevention and Protection Volunteers
SAFE is an ASeTTS initiative in collaboration with CALD refugee communities that speak the following languages: Arabic, Farsi, Hazaragi, Karen and Somali, and live in the Perth metro areas.
The project is funded by the Department of Justice under the Criminal Property Confiscation Grant.
The SAFE Project aims to promote family and community safety; and reduce the risk of family and domestic violence (FDV), sexual and gender-based crimes and other criminal behaviours. The approach of the project is to reduce FDV through both prevention and protection strategies. For more information on the project:
SAFE relies on a pool of volunteers to work with families and implement the aims. The two roles available are:
Prevention Volunteers – This role involves organising engagement activities to promote family and community safety and to improve understanding of domestic violence. It is a requirement that prevention volunteers are from refugee or refugee-like backgrounds. Prevention volunteers will be working with the support of ASeTTS’ SAFE Project Officer and Bi-Cultural Facilitators.
Protection Volunteers – This role involves working directly with individuals or families affected by domestic violence and providing practical support and information. Protection volunteers will work with the ASeTTS’ Family Support Worker. Experience working in a previous family or domestic violence role is preferred but not essential.
