Women At Risk
Access is the partner organisation on an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Australian Catholic University (ACU). The project, titled “Developing Best Practice for Settlement Services for Refugee Women-at-Risk”, is investigating the settlement experiences of refugee women who have recently arrived in Australia under the Women-at-Risk visa category. The project will be completed in mid-2017 and the results will be used to inform the design and delivery of settlement services for women at risk.
Preliminary findings based on data collected from 108 females uncover the types of difficulties experienced post-migration, social satisfaction and psychological functioning.
