Domestic Violence Response Pilot Program (DVRPP)

Professionals In Social Justice.

We deliver free legal and social supports through 7 specialist teams

We offer a range of FREE legal services to men from culturally and linguistically diverse  (CALD) communities (including migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, and temporary visa holders) in relation to domestic violence issues living across NSW.

For Clients 

We can help with FREE legal information, referrals or advice, and in some cases, legal representation.  We can also deliver FREE legal education sessions to the community.  Some of the issues we cover will include, but are not limited to: 

  • AVO matters 
  • Divorce / separation 
  • Victim protection and support 
  • Parenting disputes 
  • Minor criminal charges 
  • Debt matters 
  • Physical / spiritual / psychological / sexual / technological abuse 
  • Forced marriage 

We can provide a free interpreter if you need one. 

To assess whether you are eligible for our service, we will consider factors such as the type, urgency and nature of your legal enquiry, whether you are a man from a CALD community, your income and personal circumstances, and your legal capability. 

We prioritise our services for people with barriers to accessing justice and accept referrals from legal services, community services and other non-legal programs. 

For Service Providers 

We offer FREE legal problem-spotting training to community and social workers which looks at: 

  • Identifying common legal problems that you are likely to encounter. 
  • What types of matters free legal services can assist with. 
  • Which free legal services are available in your area. 
  • How to make an effective referral to a free legal service. 

We are also in the process of developing a legal education program concerning domestic and family violence for CALD communities and we would appreciate your input and expertise to ensure the program’s effectiveness.  We recognise that you know what works for your community so please contact us if you believe your organisation could benefit from legal support.
