Foundation Launched 2014
In Good Faith Foundation (hereafter referred to as IGFF) is an independent and nationally recognised charity launched in August 2013. IGFF’s comprehensive service model is based on 17 years of expertise initially provided by In Good Faith and Associates (IGFA). Since 2014, IGFF has been funded through DSS as a Royal Commission Support Service for a large population of survivors of religious institutional abuses. IGFF has provided significant written and verbal submissions to National and State Government Inquiries and Consultations.
IGFF’s comprehensive services include case management, advocacy, education and community support. IGFF also undertakes practice development with research undertaken in collaboration with a range of practitioners specialising in this area. Restorative projects, recently including survivor memorials, are coordinated through partnerships with survivors, institutional and community leaders.
IGFF also facilitates ‘The Melbourne Victims’ Collective’ (MVC), as a survivors’ empowerment and education forum. For over 10 years the MVC has informed social change, communicating with government, the public, media and religious institutional leaders. The MVC invites contributions from leaders and members of other survivor groups in Victoria.
