Event Details

This workshop is suitable for all workers. Beginning workers may find it more useful to attend this course after they have completed the ‘Support your client through family violence’ workshop at WLSV first.

Together with a senior member of Victoria Police this workshop will explore practical and effective ways to seek police assistance for clients experiencing family violence as well as new ways to advocate for your client’s safety.

In this interactive workshop you will learn:

  • about the Police Code of Practice for the investigation of family violence
  • about police responses to contraventions of Intervention Orders
  • to use the Code to increase your client’s safety
  • to advocate for police response to contraventions of Intervention Orders.
