The Department of Social Services (DSS) is pleased to announce that the Family Safety Pack is available in 46 languages. The pack aims to address violence against women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds by providing information about Australia’s laws and a woman’s right to be safe. It includes four factsheets and one low-literacy storyboard.
The pack was originally aimed at men and women coming to Australia on a Partner visa, however in November 2015, the Government expanded the pack to other visa classes, including Student visas and Temporary Work (subclass 457) visas. Information about the pack and where to access it is included in the relevant visa grant letters issued by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
The pack is available on the Department of Social Services website https://www.dss.gov.au/family-safety-pack
