About This Service

The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture (VFST), or 'Foundation House' as it is also known, provides a range of services to people from refugee backgrounds who have survived torture or war related trauma.

Foundation House provides direct services to clients in the form of counselling, advocacy, family support, group work, psycho-education, information sessions and complementary therapies. Direct services to clients are coupled with referral, training and education roles aimed at developing and strengthening the resources of various communities and service providers.

Foundation House provides services across Melbourne with offices in Brunswick, Dandenong, Sunshine and an outpost office in Ringwood. Services are also provided in a number of rural and regional centres across Victoria.

Foundation House is non-denominational, politically neutral and non-aligned.
