FICT is a group program for newly arrived refugees and migrants which aims to help adults adjust to life in Australia.

During the program participants:

  • Learn from each other
  • Have their feelings and reactions normalised
  • Learn about different family structures and roles
  • Find out about support services available to refugees and others
  • Form good relationships

The FICT kit contains:

  • A helpful facilitator introduction on how to implement the programs
  • Introduction to the program for parents and getting to know each other
  • Support systems
  • Budgeting and finance
  • Trauma and healing
  • Families
  • Children
  • Gender
  • Youth
  • Enjoying the environment
  • Board games (temporarily unavailable as they are being updated)
  • Handouts and overheads
  • Sample evaluation forms

Facilitators of the FICT program should have good contacts with their community, have some experience in running groups and have a good knowledge of English (as well as their communities’ language/s). In some situations an interpreter can be used. They must also receive training in running the FICT program, either from STARTTS or another organisation experienced with FICT.
