A Victorian Safety Audit has been established to assess the physical structure and operations of Victorian Magistrates’ Courts to ensure safety for people attending for family violence matters.
Women with Disabilities Victoria are undertaking a survey to understand women’s experiences of disability access at the Magistrate’s Courts.
This de-identified information will be provided to the Department of Justice and Regulation to highlight work needed to bring facilities into compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act.
You can complete the survey online. The survey closes at midnight on 3 December, the International Day of People with Disability.
