Support services

knowmore’s Support Services team of specialist social workers and counsellors can assist you through the process of accessing our legal service.

We know that seeking legal advice can be a daunting task and that recalling unhappy memories can have an unexpectedly disturbing effect.

It may help to talk to a Support Services team member about the impact of talking about past abuse experiences.

The Support Services team can provide assistance in a number of ways:

  • provide information and advice about on-going counselling and other support options in your local community
  • provide short-term counselling and support while you are going through the legal advice process
  • prepare you for your legal appointment
  • support you during your appointment with a lawyer, either over the phone or in person, when it is possible to do so
  • follow up and debrief with you after your appointment.
