Initiatives for Women in Need - July Community Champion

Our July Community Champion is Initiatives for Women in Need (IWiN).

They are a volunteer-led organisation that aims to assist and empower women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds affected by domestic violence and other wellbeing issues through community-building, support and advocacy. The combination of their expertise on policy issues with community-building skills means they have been able to formally and informally support women in the ACT experiencing domestic violence in a culturally-sensitive manner.  

Along with running social events to foster community connection between members, they also host larger-scale events focused on education and advocacy to prevent domestic violence.

Their work has previously been recognised through an ACT Government Community Organisation Champion Award. Currently, they are undertaking a project capturing the COVID-19 experiences of women from multicultural backgrounds through video interviews.
