Reach out for help

A range of Indigenous resources to help to build awareness about domestic and family violence and the courts process have been published.

These resources reinforce the message that domestic and family violence is not part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, and all people, families and children should be safe, protected and free from fear.

They provide advice on how people can:

  • Prepare for going to court.
  • Feel as safe and comfortable as possible during their court appearance.
  • Understand clearly what is happening in court, what has been decided, and how this will affect them and their family. See copies of the printed materials, printed in Torres Strait Islander Creole and Wik Mungkan and watch the short video explaining the variety of forms domestic and family violence can take.
