A sincere thank you to LIV Young Lawyers Gatehouse Legal Recruitment and Deakin Law School for supporting IMCL's Acting on the Warning Signs project, a partnership with The Royal Women's Hospital enabling us to provide free legal help to women seeking healthcare.
"CEO of the Inner Melbourne Community Legal Centre, Daniel Stubbs, said that the on-site legal service is complemented with training for front-line health professionals to identify and respond to patients suffering from family violence.
‘Having lawyers on-site is so important to help break the cycle of domestic violence. Often the first time the victim leaves a violent situation is to be treated for injuries. In this way, victims are treated for their injuries and able to speak with a lawyer at the same time while they are removed from the situation."
