About us

Our Purpose

To improve outcomes for all women, with a specific focus on victim-survivors of family violence by:

  • providing high quality legal services for Victorian women who are disadvantaged or marginalised by structural and systemic barriers,

  • assisting women and professionals that work with women, to better understand the law and navigate the legal system safely, and

  • advancing gender equality by challenging unsafe and discriminatory policies and laws and informing and advocating for legal and policy initiatives that respect and promote the rights of women.

Our Impact

Our Strategy sets out the impact we aim to have through our work. It also explains how we do our work, how we make decisions about what we do and how we continue to develop our organisational model in order to be as effective as possible.

Our office is closed

We will reopen at 9am Monday 8 January 2024.
