In response to the health challenge posed by Covid-19, the Fitzroy Legal Service is conducting most services remotely, via telephone or video conference.  This change to our service delivery has necessitated significant investment in IT capability.   We are also anticipating a significant increase in family violence, arising out of Covid-19, with perpetrators utilising the crisis to further isolate, survey and control their victims. Research demonstrates that family violence increases after emergency and natural disaster situations, and shows that in some instances, family violence could increase anywhere from 30% to 100%. Noting the groundswell of enquiries the service system will face when restrictions lift, we will require additional lawyers and support staff to manage this demand and support affected community members to seek expedient legal advice and Court representation.  The Fitzroy Legal Service is a registered charity.  Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
