FLOWS - project aims
The project is designed to ensure, through specialist support of front-line workers, access to legal remedies which enable women and children to protect themselves from violence, gain court-orders, access Legal Aid, and navigate court-processes.
FLOWS addresses a significant gap in the availability of legal-advice resources for front-line professionals in Women’s Refuges, Women’s Aid organisations and organisations that provide safe environments to disclose abuse: for example, local Citizens Advice services, Law Centres, Law Clinics, and court-based services.
