Service Innovation Program
Foundation House’s Service Innovation Program is focused on seeking new ways forward in work with refugees, their families, their communities and the service providers and systems supporting them.
Foundation House has a long and successful track record of launching innovative programs that have reshaped how services are delivered to refugees in Australia. Through the development and trial of new ideas, Foundation House has created a collection of dynamic programs and resources with the aim of making its work the best it can be in an ever-changing environment.
On many occasions over the last two decades, the philanthropy sector has possessed both the vision and flexibility to fund such programs. Once Foundation House has demonstrated the effectiveness and success of an initial pilot program, the investment of other funding entities, either government or philanthropic, often becomes possible, enabling new innovations to grow, develop and achieve maximum impact. Throughout Foundation House's history, philanthropy has on many occasions been a reliable and supportive base to which Foundation House has been able to turn when it has sought to explore new ways of reaching out to refugee communities.
