Assistance for Victims of Domestic Violence

Legal Services Commission help for victims of Domestic and Family Violence

The Legal Services Commission has a service to assist victims of domestic violence, see the Domestic Violence Advice page on the LSC website.

In late 2015 the Legal Services Commission was granted funds to deliver a specialist domestic violence pilot program based in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide under the Federal government's Women’s Safety package.

The LSC Domestic Violence Unit was established in the Northern suburbs and operates collaboratively with the Lyell McEwin Hospital and the Northern Domestic Violence Service.

In 2019 the Legal Services Commission was granted funds to operate the Women's Domestic Violence Court Assistance Service. This service assists women and children experiencing domestic and family violence to navigate legal matters relating to domestic violence, such as intervention orders and related tenancy orders. Prior to 2019, the WDVCAS was operated by the Victim Support Service.

Victims Support Service

The Victim Support Service provides free and confidential help to adult victims of crime, witnesses, their family, and friends across South Australia.
