Family Advocacy and Support Services in Dandenong

10:15am Monday, 29 May 2017

Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) has welcomed the opportunity to be involved in a new Family Advocacy and Support Services (FASS) pilot at the Dandenong Family Law Court.

The FASS aims to support families affected by family violence (including people who have experienced or are alleged to have used family violence), through the provision of legal advice, safety-planning, social support services and referrals.

RAV provides a full-time family violence men’s support worker who is based at and delivers services primarily at the Dandenong Family Law Court. Through the collaborative service, clients can be referred to other relevant supports.

This builds on our expertise as a provider of integrated services to families and as a provider of quality services to men.

The FASS in Dandenong has been established by Victoria Legal Aid, with funding from the Australian Government as part of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.  RAV will join the pilot from 1 July 2017. The pilot runs for two years until 30 June 2019.

Find out more about the service on Victoria Legal Aid’s website.
