Women from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) refers to people born overseas and/or whose first language is not English.

Domestic and family violence can take many forms, including threatening to cancel your visa, isolating you from your cultural community or from the community at large, controlling your religious practices or ridiculing your customs.

Women from CALD backgrounds may find it difficult accessing support due to language or cultural barriers. Staff at Warrina can help with interpreters and culturally appropriate support to enable women to make choices for themselves.
