Legal Aid NSW is committed to ensuring that the WDVCAP:
Delivers accessible, consistent and high-quality services to women and children experiencing domestic violence
Works collaboratively with justice system partners and other organisations to improve access to justice for women and children experiencing domestic violence
Pursues continuous improvement across NSW
Legal Aid NSW funds WDVCASs through the 2015-18 WDVCAP Service Agreement. The Service Agreement sets out the responsibilities and obligations of the Service Provider. This policy manual forms a part of the standard Service Agreement.
Legal Aid NSW is responsible for monitoring the compliance of WDVCASs and their Service Providers with the requirements of the Service Agreement and the policy manual.
Should a WDVCAS be in breach of its obligations, Legal Aid NSW may withhold funding until the breach has been addressed.
