Inuit Well-being: Support for Survivors of GBV

Inuit Well-being: Support for Survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV) and their Families

Earlier this year, Inuuqatigiit submitted a project concept for “Inuit Well-Being: Support for Gender-Based Violence Survivors and their Families” to the Department for Women and Gender Equality. We have been awarded funding to develop a Project Implementation Plan (PIP) for a five-year initiative (2019-24).

The aim of the project is to test and evaluate Inuuqatigiit’s Inuit-specific wrap-around model of services addressing family mental/physical health, childcare, housing, culture and language, system navigation and advocacy. Our strengths-based approach reduces barriers for vulnerable individuals and families, builds capacity and contributes to better outcomes for Inuit children, youth, and their families who are impacted by violence.
