impactFUL will be a free well-being program for Family Violence victims & survivors.
impactFUL is a UNIQUE program. Nothing like it operates in Victoria!
impactFUL is a 20 week pilot program which will provide safe and caring low-medium impact, trauma-sensitive well-being classes led by a qualified personal trainer. It is NOT a self-defence course.
impactFUL will be delivered at no cost to women currently experiencing or who have experienced Family Violence. We will also offer free child-minding onsite for the program's participants.
impactFUL will enhance the participants' fitness, improve their health and well-being, increase their confidence, self-esteem and facilitate their recovery from abuse. 'Thrival' rather than just survival will be a key goal.
As well as actively participating in the classes, a female police officer and social worker be available after each session to offer individual support and advice.
This program will initially be run in the Moorabbin/Cheltenham area with support from Fernwood Cheltenham (Southland), Emerge - Women & Children's Support Network and the Moorabbin Victoria Police but we expect to roll this program out across Victoria over the next few years.
WOOHOO!!!! We're so excited!!!
