The Loo Project will seek to gain a better understanding of views that young culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) women in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) believe about domestic and family violence, and what they know about existing support services. The UI is proposing to undertake an assessment of the views that CALD women aged 15-29 have about relationship violence as well as their understanding about support services available for victims of this violence.
This project is named after Ms Bestlyn Loo, in appreciation of her ground-breaking work assessing the nature of and responses to IPV within residential colleges at The Australian National University (ANU). Given that her work formed the foundations of this project, and that Bestlyn inspired our Directors to take action to support young, CALD women suffering from domestic violence, the UI wished to acknowledge Ms Loo.
This project aims to build on the foundations that Ms Loo has laid to capture the experiences of young CALD women and their relationship with sector service providers in the ACT.
