Wraparound support

We wrap our treatment and support services around our clients. That is, our treatment and support services ensure you get the right help from the right service, and as many or as few services are you need.  

If you are attend court at the Centre, your duty lawyer will be your main point of contact with any services you may need.  You may also encounter our Neighbourhood Justice Officer, who is the link between the court, services, the client, and the community, and provides more intensive support interventions as well as referrals to other services.

Other people you may encounter  are the Salvation Army Officer and Court Network volunteers, all of whom provide support before, during and after court.

If you do not have a court matter, and you're a local Yarra resident, we can help you to find the right service for you.
