In addition to the legal advice and assistance provided through our mainstream services, we also do the following:
Djinda Service is the specialist Perth Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention Legal Service we run in partnerships with Relationships Australia WA.
Family Law (Property) Legal Clinic
We run a Family Law (Property) Legal Clinic about family law financial matters. This can include property settlement and spousal maintenance.
The Legal Clinic runs once a month or so and the one hour appointments are usually with private family lawyers who generously donate their time to volunteer at our Service.
Community Legal Education
We provide community legal education to better educate the community and the community services sector about the most common legal issues affecting women.
Law and Policy Reform
An important part of our role is working towards a systemic improvement in access to justice for women in WA. We ensure women’s voices are heard by engaging in Government reviews, making policy and law reform submissions, and in working in collaboration with like-minded networks and organisations.
We have developed a number of resources that provide information on legal issues so people can better understand the processes and options available to them.
