Family Violence Law Help is a new national website for people wanting to understand domestic and family violence, the law and where to get help.
It can be used by people affected by domestic and family violence, educators and frontline workers.
Family Violence Law Help has free, easy to understand information about:
- domestic and family violence,
- family law,
- child protection law,
- Family Violence and Restraint Orders; and
- where to get help.
The website can be translated into different languages and has useful factsheets that can be downloaded or printed. It uses illustrations throughout to help with readability. It also has information about the Tasmania Family Advocacy and Support Service (FASS), who provide free legal and social support to people affected by domestic and family violence.
For a tour of the website, you can watch this short video or have a look yourself at www.familyviolencelaw.gov.au. Family Violence Law Help was developed by Legal Aid NSW on behalf of National Legal Aid. The project has been funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department.
Any feedback or questions about the website can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
