Steps 2 Safety

Steps 2 Safety is a video explaining the Family Violence Intervention Order process in an easy to understand and accessible way.

Steps 2 Safety was a partnership project led by ECLC in collaboration with Ringwood Magistrates’ Court, EDVOS, Victoria Legal Aid, EACH – Eastern Victims Assistance and Counselling Program, Victoria Police and Anglicare Lilydale.

The Steps 2 Safety video was funded by a grant from Victoria Law Foundation.
