WA Family Law Pathways Network and the Family Court of Western Australia present bi-monthly Walk in Their Shoes tours, to assist practitioners in the sector to understand the pathways families take when accessing the Court. These tours include a walk-through of the Court’s services, an observation of a child related proceeding list, and a Q&A panel with a Magistrate, Family Consultant, Legal Aid lawyer and Department of Communities; Child Protection and Family Support representative.
The tours run from 9.30am - 12 noon and are free of charge, however booking is essential as these tours are very popular and book out very quickly.
As you are aware, the Walk in Their Shoes tours at the Family Court was suspended earlier this year due to COVID-19. However, we are pleased to inform that the tours will be resuming , though with a smaller cohort for health and safety reasons as directed by the Family Court. A strict limit of 15 attendees per tour will apply.
Due to the restriction in numbers, we are only able to offer 1 ticket per organisation based on a first come first served basis.
If maximum numbers are not met, the limit will be lifted 2 weeks prior to the tour date. Registrations will continue operating on a first-come first-serve basis and if the organisational ticket limit is exceeded, the relevant attendees will be notified and placed on the waiting list instead.
The next tour scheduled for Wednesday 23 February 2022 HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. We apologise for the inconvenience and are working together with the Family Court to put an alternative option in place for future tours.
Please email WA.FamilyPathwayNetwork@RelationshipsWA.org.au to register your interest for the tours.
