We are a women-only team and have an exception under the Equal Opportunity Act to employ only women.
Women’s Legal Service Victoria (Women’s Legal) works with women experiencing family violence to find safety and get legal advice. Our legal team, social workers and financial counsellors work with thousands of women each year to ensure that they have what they need to make decisions for themselves and their family. The service we provide is trauma-informed and covers family law, family violence, victims of crime, migration and child protection.
We provide practical legal advice to workers supporting victim-survivors of family violence and train thousands of lawyers and community workers each year to recognise family violence and legal issues that comes with it. Our experience guides our policy and advocacy work to improve the law for women and their children.
Everyone who works with us directly contributes to building a more gender-equitable society.
We’re continually building on our culture of inclusivity, collaboration and safety so our teams and individuals thrive. Our values are more than words – they’re actions we take together.
Authentic: We are reliable, trustworthy and transparent about how we work. We reflect on our work and take responsibility for our actions.
Collaborative: We are stronger when we work together. By sharing power and privilege with diverse voices, we achieve better outcomes. We respond to requests for help with generosity.
Courageous: We are brave, resilient and face challenges with integrity. We unapologetically advocate for our goals and back one another to take considered risks to increase our impact.
Inclusive: We believe respect, equality and opportunity must be afforded equitably and to everyone. We understand this will require critical reflection on where power lies and how it functions, and active effort to disrupt it.
Purposeful: Our services respond to the community, laws and people we work with. We value curiosity and relish opportunities to improve our work.
