FAN offers a therapeutic support group for LGBTIQ+ young people aged 15-25 who have experienced family violence. Young people who are of diverse gender identities and expressions, sexualities, and/or sex characteristics will have the opportunity to create peer connections, build individual wellbeing, and better understand the dynamics of family violence and how they can intersect with homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and/or intersexphobia. Group members also have the opportunity to access individual support.
This group meets weekly in Box Hill, during school terms. For more information or to join the group, please contact FAN on 03 9890 2673.
The LGBTIQ+ Family Violence Therapeutic Program is a part of Pathways to Resilience, delivered in partnership with Uniting, Safe Futures Foundation, Australian Childhood Foundation and EACH.
