Quick Exit

We provide free legal advice for women in Western Australia.

Safe as Houses

Safe as Houses is a specialised program that aims to prevent homelessness for women and children affected by family and domestic violence.

By working in partnership with Tenancy WA and Street Law WA we together provide integrated legal and non-legal support services to resolve the complex tangle of issues family violence tends to create. Those issues can include:

  • family law
  • child support
  • child protection
  • debt
  • injuries compensation
  • criminal proceedings
  • tenancy
  • business and employment

How does it work?

Often a woman affected by family violence has to access a variety of services for help with a whole raft of legal and practical issues. By providing a support worker who uses an integrated case managed approach, Safe as Houses provides a more efficient, holistic and ultimately more effective way to resolve issues.
