Women’s Domestic Violence Court Assistance Service (WDVCAS)
A critical new service being delivered by Victim Support Service (VSS) directly assists victims of domestic violence to navigate legal matters including Intervention Orders. This is a free, confidential service which provides a greater level of support within the court system for victims of family and domestic violence.
Legal officers provide support and advocate on behalf of women who have difficulties applying for an Intervention Order, reporting a breach or raising safety concerns.
The service is statewide, and operates from the VSS network of metro and regional service centres. The WDVCAS team is located at the VSS office at Halifax Street, Adelaide, next to the Court precinct, and provides outreach into the existing VSS regional offices when required. VSS Regional staff can arrange a video-link via the VSS videoconferencing system to connect regional clients to the legal team in Adelaide.
Women can access the service from anywhere in South Australia using the free-call telephone number 1800 VICTIM (842846) or via the VSS website http://www.victimsa.org/referral_form.php.
