Family Court Support

Family Court Support

WIS Family Court Support volunteers attend court with women who don’t have friends or family to provide support. Many of the cases involve a history of domestic violence and the court process can be daunting and difficult to navigate. WIS volunteers provide information about the court and its processes, sit with the woman before and during the hearing and provide a listening ear.

We will provide you with a comprehensive 2 week training program, a minimum of 2 ‘Buddy’ shifts and a supportive work environment in a women-centred program.
