Legal Services Commission help for victims of Domestic and Family Violence
The Legal Services Commission has a service to assist victims of domestic violence, see: http://www.lsc.sa.gov.au/cb_pages/legal_advice_dv.php
In late 2015 the Legal Services Commission was informed that it will be granted funds to deliver a new domestic violence pilot program based in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide under the Federal government's Women’s Safety package.
The DV Unit has now been established in the Northern suburbs and a collaborative approach with the Health Sector is taking place.
Victims Support Service
The Victim Support Service provides free and confidential help to adult victims of crime, witnesses, their family, and friends across South Australia.
Part of this service includes the Women’s Domestic Violence Court Assistance Service (WDVCAS) which was established in 2015. The service assists victims of domestic violence to navigate legal matters in relation to domestic violence, such as including Intervention Orders.
