Today IWSS launched their new multilingual resources on domestic violence. These new resources were made possible through funding provided by the Department of Communities and generous permission to utilise and adapt existing resources from the Gold Coast Domestic Violence Prevention Centre and Multicultural Families Organisation.
The resource is available in English, and in fifteen community languages: Arabic, Bosnian, Chinese, Dari, Farsi, French, Hindi, Japanese, Juba Arabic, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
Immediately following the launch there was a training workshop for workers on creatively using translated resources with women from non-English speaking backgrounds. (NESB).
