Family Law Service Cuts

15 March - Media statement - Impending cuts to the Centre's Family Law Service

21 March - Herald Sun / Leader article - Darebin Community Legal Centre says federal cuts will affect 500 vulnerable clients

Over 90% of our family law cases have family violence as a factor. The Family Law Service has positively touched the lives of over 1000 Victorian children.

These cuts will create a gap in the Centre's services and leave a large number of vulnerable people out in the cold. Show your support for Darebin Community Legal Centre by sharing on social media the above links.
