Hope and help for family violence victims in Victoria

According to Victoria Legal Aid (VLA), an alarming 80 per cent of all its cases that come before the family courts feature some form of family violence.

Now a new holistic program aims to help people work through violent family situations with targeted legal assistance and social support.

In addition to legal advice, the new Family Advocacy and Support Services (FASS) program offers VLA clients risk screening, safety planning and social support and referrals.
