Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international Catholic organisation with a mission to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of refugees and forcibly displaced people.
The JRS Finding Safety project, aims to support asylum seeking and refugee women to increase their understanding of domestic and family violence, its drivers and their rights. The project also provides information, advice and referrals to assist refugee women experiencing violence or at risk of violence to access appropriate support.
Finding Safety aims to support the empowerment of refugee and asylum seeking women and girls to self-advocate and develop leadership skills.
Finding Safety also includes capacity building for workers in the asylum and migration sector to build understanding of domestic and family violence, and for workers in the domestic and family violence and the women’s sector to build understanding of issues facing women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
