We develop and deliver comprehensive programs that cover healthy relationships, family violence and sexual assault, gender and sexuality, support and accountability, and consent and communication. In all our programs we prioritise support for people who have experienced or are experiencing violence.
Our project is informed by transformative justice and intersectional feminism, and by an analysis of the particular ways violence occurs in LGBTIQ+ relationships.
Some of us are also individually involved in projects that facilitate community-based responses to family and sexual violence, using transformative justice frameworks to create different pathways than those leading to the criminal, legal and prison systems.

We acknowledge that Undercurrent is situated on the land of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We stand on this land as beneficiaries of an uncompensated and unreconciled dispossession which began over 200 years ago and continues today. We would like to reflect that within acknowledgement there should be action. How do we act in solidarity with first nations peoples? How do we act against the economic and social systems which reinforce racism, oppression and subjugation?
