ASIT gives priority to the most vulnerable individuals, families, cohorts and communities in Australia, whether they be experiencing immediate or intergenerational disadvantage or distress.
This includes community members experiencing intergenerational social and economic disadvantage (such as those in communities in which we co-deliver the Our Place collective impact initiative), refugees and asylum seekers experiencing distress (such as the clients of our Amplifying Social Impact services client, Settlement Services International - SSI), and children and young people in out-of-home care (as part of our SI-3 - Social Innovation, Impact & Investment services).
PEOPLE EXPERIENCING POVERTY: We believe holistic, early intervention to relieve poverty and achieve systemic change is key to the prevention of almost all negative social outcomes directly associated with poverty.
PEOPLE EXPERIENCING DISTRESS – REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS: We believe swift, culturally appropriate assistance will relieve barriers and distress, and help to build long-term health and wellbeing, creating long-term stability and ensuring positive social outcomes. This relief/assistance must include a whole-of-community response to re-establishing community structures and support networks.
PEOPLE EXPERIENCING DISTRESS – YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUT-OF-HOME CARE: We believe creating positive and equitable long-term outcomes for young people in out-of-home care requires a systematic, holistic response.
