The EMH Court Support Program assists women with the process of applying for Interim and Full Intervention Orders at the Heidelberg Court. The aim of this program is to make the application and Court processes easier and to try to ensure that woman understands her rights and options while being emotionally supported. The EMH Court Support Worker can make appointments at the Courts for Intervention Orders, assists with the application itself, arrange legal representation and can attend court with woman. The Court Support Worker can make referrals to other programs within EMH and to orther servcies and when needed complete risk assessment and safety planning.
Women can be referred to the Court Support Worker by services or byself referring. Contact us to discuss the program or to make a time to speak to the Court Support Worker.
