The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture
The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture (Foundation House) was incorporated in 1987 to meet the needs of people in Victoria who were subject to torture or trauma in their country of origin or while fleeing those countries. It is non-denominational, politically neutral and non-aligned. Foundation House is constituted as a non-profit organisation managed by an elected committee of management. While many of its innovative programs are funded by charitable trusts and private donations, its core funding is provided by the Victorian Department of Human Services and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. The Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs also make a substantial contribution to the Foundation’s funding base. Foundation House provides direct services to survivors of torture and trauma in the form of counselling, advocacy, family support, group work, psycho-education, information sessions and complementary therapies.
