North-West Enhanced Pathways 


This project aims to intervene early to prevent vulnerable women and children in our regions from experiencing family violence and family separation through enhanced safety pathways within an integrated legal health model. Maternal Child Health Services (MCHS), when working with women with complex issues, consistently identify a need for child protection, family violence and family law legal support.


This project will enable NCLC to extend and strengthen our collaborative partnerships with MCHS teams across our catchments, providing an integrated response to address health, wellbeing and legal need. Project funding will enable NCLC to employ a Child Protection Lawyer and Family Violence Lawyer to conduct capacity building activities and implement co-case-management structures.


The project will support early identification and referral for legal support, leading to improved safety outcomes for women and their young children exposed to violence.

Seeing a Lawyer

If your Maternal Child Health Worker  has suggested that you see a lawyer to assist with family violence related issues, this video will help you to understand what to expect.
