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. They can be approached in any order and are designed to be easy to jump in and out of as needed. You might engage with them as a full legal induction or simply to look for answers on specific topics. 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.

2. Family Violence System

An overview of IVOs and common issues experienced in the Magistrates Court. We highlight where things can go wrong and how to best support in this legal space.

5. Child Protection System

Learn how Child Protection can become involved and tips for supporting clients when they do. We’ll also cover common issues encountered by survivors when the child welfare system intersects with the other Courts.

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 result
