The Numula Family Safety Response Program (Numula) is funded to provide culturally responsive support and links to services for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander individuals and families impacted by Domestic and Family Violence.
The service is multi-functional-holistic and flexible in the ways of working and focuses on the well-being of all family members.
The Numula program recognises the cultural importance of extended kinship systems and cultural protocols and such demonstrates respect and acknowledges the diversity within Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Community overall.
The service staff work collaboratively across the sector with partner agencies, community members, community groups e.g. Elders and other organisations who also work to reduce Domestic and Family Violence and respond to other issues within communities. These collaborations and partnerships provide greater accessibility for community members to engage and receive the assistance they need at the right time and place.
