Legal Support

SiS offers holistic, trauma-informed legal assistance to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who have experienced, or are experiencing family violence and/or sexual assault.

The areas of law that we provide legal support in include:

  • Family violence matters (and restraint orders where the circumstances fit the SiS definition of family violence)
  • Family law (parenting)
  • Child Safety (advocacy, early intervention, orders, reunification)
  • Victims of crime compensation
  • Victim/Witness assistance for sexual assault/family violence matters
