A National Collective for Survivors of Violence Against Women

We want to find out how Family Court proceedings and orders are or have impacted on your children. We would love to hear from you if you are a mother who has experienced violence and abuse who no longer lives with your abuser and who has child/en who are or who have been part of Family Court proceedings.
