Application of Personal Protection Order (PPO)


A Personal Protection Order (PPO) is an order restraining one from committing family violence against another family member. The application and court process can be found here. You can file for protection from family violence committed by a family member: • Spouse or ex-spouse • Child, including an adopted child or stepchild • Parent • Parent-In-law • Sibling • Any other relative who the Court may regard as a member of your family

We assist victims of family abuse in their PPO application with the Family Justice Courts via video conferencing. If you are below the age of 21, you will require a parent, guardian or an appointed social worker to apply on your behalf. To apply for a PPO, call us at 64761482 or head down to the Family Justice Courts.




Support for individuals and families


Case management With the goal of reducing family violence and increasing safety in the home, our team of social workers work closely with individuals and families who experience abuse at home. We provide counselling, and practical and emotional support to victims, perpetrators and vulnerable family members who witness the abuse (e.g., children and the elderly).

Groupwork
We conduct group work sessions to provide a safe platform for victims with similar experiences of family violence to learn, share and support each other. The sessions aim to reduce the barriers of shame, isolation and loneliness that often surround households threatened by family abuse. You can draw comfort, encouragement and empowerment from each other in your respective journeys towards healing and restoration.




Partnership and collaboration


Alongside key stakeholders and community partners, we organise community engagement and public education to raise awareness on family violence and equip residents in the community with the knowledge to support neighbours who may be victims. As family violence can happen to anyone around us, the community is an important source of support.
