North Sydney Womens Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service

The Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program (WDVCAP) Unit administers NSW Government funding for a network of 27 Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Services (WDVCASs) across the state. WDVCASs are locally-based, incorporated, not-for-profit, non-government service providers.

The WDVCAP Unit monitors WDVCAS service providers to ensure they meet their service agreement obligations, and women and children receive a professional and effective service. The WDVCAP Unit also provides training and mentoring to WDVCAS staff and seconded workers, to ensure adherence to the WDVCAP model of best practice service delivery.

The WDVCAP Unit works in partnership with NSW Police Force, NSW Local Courts, the Department of Justice and a range of other stakeholders such as housing and health services.
