You can get free and confidential safety services if:

  • You are a victim of a charge related to family violence in a criminal court, or
  • You’ have applied for a Protection Order through the Family Court and are waiting for a decision.

We provide safety services, and they are designed to help you deal with the effects of the violence, feel more confident and move forward with your life. We explain how to keep safe and provide practical information about how Protection Orders work.

The services are available by phone or face-to-face.

Courses to help children

There are also courses, especially for children, to help them understand the effects of any violence they've seen or experienced. 

How to get access to a course

If you would like to access safety services talk to your lawyer or Family Court staff or you can contact us directly. There's no time limit on the availability of a safety course for a protected person (adult or child). The only requirement is that the Protection Order is still in force.
