Wraparound support

Our treatment and support services wrap around our clients. That is, we'll get you the help you need. 

If you are attending our court, your main point of contact will be your duty lawyer and they can put you in touch with our other services.

Our Neighbourhood Justice Officer will also help you navigate the justice system, put you in touch with support and generally be here to help you.

And you can talk to the friendly Court Network volunteers (External link)  before, during and after court. 

And remember, regardless of whether are attending our court or not, if you're a local Yarra resident, we can help you to find the right support.
