IndianCare is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to address the welfare and wellbeing needs of people of South Asian origin living in Victoria.
Cultural displacement, lack of social capital and unfamiliar settings leave members of our community particularly vulnerable to hardship and loneliness.
At IndianCare, we specialise in connecting our community with service providers that can address these unique challenges in a socio-culturally sensitive way.
At IndianCare we strive to:
- Serve as a culturally sensitive connecting vehicle, facilitating access to existing service providers
- Collaborate with a network of organisations to support individuals of South Asian origin facing hardship
- Educate mainstream organisations on better meeting the needs of people of South Asian origin
- Advocate better outcomes, for people of South Asian origin, to all levels of government
At present IndianCare is involved in the following areas of work:
- Our helpline: Information and referral services
- Family violence: Project Ujala, primary prevention, and early intervention programs
- Emergency relief: Supporting community members experiencing hardship
- International students: Project SASS, Supporting South Asian International Students
- Alcohol and other drug use (AOD) support: Western Local Drug Action Team (LDAT)
