Resources for Workers Supporting Victim Survivors of Family Violence through Legal Systems (2023)
These short courses explain a few key intersecting systems you’re likely to be encountering as a family violence worker including: intervention orders in the Magistrates Court, separation and childcare arrangements in Family Court, rights to relationship property and child protection services. Each course is made up of videos, links to further resources, factsheets and more which build on the material. They are supposed to act as a bit of a training manual – with real, practical guidance on how to help and what not to do.
All the information covered in these courses is not given as legal advice and is only general information.
Us case workers are time poor. We’re always thinking: how much am I putting into this?
A resource which showed how any particular step would actually be beneficial to the client would be helpful as we’re more likely to do something when we know about the real results
