Atunypa Wiru Minyma Uwankaraku Service is a domestic and family violence support and advocacy service for Aboriginal women and children living in the NPY region. The service is informed by a holistic and relational understanding of violence which acknowledges the key role of family and community relationships in working effectively with indigenous clients. The service provides holistic case management, and facilitates group work within a community development framework for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.
The Domestic and Family Violence Service, also known as ‘Atunypa Wiru Minyma Uwankaraku’ (Good Protection for All Women) works from a ‘holistic and relational’ standpoint, and is structured so that caseworkers are supported to develop relationships in the communities in which they work using a community development approach. Casework support for women can include crisis response, support through the legal system as well as therapeutic and more long-term work supporting women’s resistance to violence.
Caseworkers are supported by the Community Programs Team (CPT), which is made up of project workers who have specialist skills in community development, legal advocacy, education and narrative therapy.
The Manager (DFVS) is responsible for management and leadership of a multidisciplinary team which delivers an innovative, best practice domestic and family violence service to women in the NPY Lands. Broadly, the Manager will have oversight of and supervise:
