Safer Families is a professional development program that supports community legal centre lawyers to provide high quality, effective advice and representation to clients experiencing family violence.
Critical Legal Issues Map Training is designed for specialist family violence practitioners and other practitioners working with clients affected by family violence, as they are often the first point of contact for those experiencing family violence.
The foundation level training covers legal essentials in family violence, family law and child protection law, with a focus on early identification of legal issues, the provision of legal information and referral for legal advice.
The advanced level training is for practitioners providing ongoing support and case planning, and covers legal processes and their complex interactions in more depth. To be eligible for this training, you must either have participated in the Foundation level training and/or have basic knowledge about family violence law, family law and child protection law.
Further foundation and advanced sessions will be scheduled for 2021-2022. To be notified of future sessions, click here.
