‘I Need to Know You’re Safe’ Framework

Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) and Anglicare Victoria present the latest practice framework for engaging multicultural young people experiencing family violence.

The ‘I need to know you’re safe’ framework highlights the lived experience, needs and challenges of multicultural young people when accessing the family violence service system. Drawing on consultations with multicultural young people and family violence practitioners, the framework elevates the voices of multicultural young people and identifies how the wider service system can better support their engagement.

This framework was developed as part of Family Safety Victoria’s ‘Working Together’ project and follows the release of the Family Violence Policy Paper.
