- explore the experiences of women receiving proactive support from WDVCASs under the DVJS;
- identify any difficulties encountered by WDVCASs in implementing aspects of the DVJS;
- propose recommendations for improving the implementation of aspects of the DVJS.
The research design employed a mixed methodological approach, involving the collection of quantitative and qualitative data from multiple sources. These sources included the Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program (WDVCAP) database, the Central Referral Point (CRP) database, a research data tool, and in-depth interviews with WDVCAS Coordinators, specialist Aboriginal and Multicultural staff and women clients of WDVCASs.
