A message from IGFF

As of March 24 2020, the IGFF team are all working from their homes to safeguard client and staff safety.

We remain available for:

  • client calls and emails 
  • continuing to assist with specialised advocacy
  • providing care, support, redress and justice pathways.

We are also responding to new issues, such as ‘stay at home’ community distancing and vulnerable people’s access to supplies and health care.  

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can help you with – from a phone call to check in and support/advocacy that might be useful. 

You can reach us by email or phone on our usual phone number. Just leave a message and we’ll get back to you ASAP. 

During this time of change, we are ensuring that IGFF services continue with the least disruption possible. 

For more details, you can read our March letter here: https://igff.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/March-letter-from-IGFF.pdf


In Good Faith Foundation is a registered charity that has thrived with the demands for services growing exponentially in recent years. IGFF continues to act as an Australia wide role model through its responses to survivors of institutional abuses in religious contexts and act as a force for social good.

Foundation Services

IGFF’s has provided leading case management and advocacy services to survivors, families and communities impacted by institutional abuses for over 20 years. IGFF’s services also include research and community education, information forums, community development and survivor support through the Melbourne Victims’ Collective. Our small, dedicated team of staff and volunteers co-ordinate warm referrals for mental health care, legal representation, police liaison, social welfare and pastoral support. IGFF provides expert consultation, policy and practice development to improving outcomes for survivors.


IGFF is a national, Redress Support Service offering free and confidential support to anyone considering applying to the National Redress Scheme. The National Redress Scheme was created in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and is an alternative to civil litigation or mediation processes. IGFF can provide more information about who can apply, help you fill out the form and support you throughout this process. For more information visit www.nationalredress.gov.au or call 1800 737 377.

Melbourne Victims Collective

The Melbourne Victims’ Collective has provided an avenue for community action and education to an empowered community of survivors. Established in 2006, the MVC is a unique example of a supportive and empowered group, with survivors, families, professionals and supporters meeting every eight weeks for over nine years. Founded by In Good Faith and Associates, it is now a work of the Foundation that provides feedback, discusses current issues, identifies possible responses and may take collective action such as the Rally of Hope, 2013.
