SOFA Projects

Our friends at Curtin are looking for volunteers to help them with their projects, and they would love your help!

Curtin have launched the Safer Options for Aggression (SOFA) project for people who have suffered/are suffering from intimate partner violence (IPV) to help identify what support is available, what support is accessed, and how to better help those in need of assistance.

If you would like to contribute to this important research, please check out the opportunities below – and remember, support is always available.

This survey assesses LGBTIQA+ individuals’ needs and preferences about the supports they receive from primary care services when seeking support for IPV. Completion of the survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Please complete the survey here.
