The Central West Family Law Pathways Network aims to facilitate a substantial dialogue and network among providers in the family law system in order that:
All providers in the Family Law System are better informed
Community members will be able to attend information and/or activities that will provide information or the opportunity to connect with agencies in the Family Law System
Practitioners in the Family Law System will increase their knowledge on how each agency works in the Family Law System
Professional relationships are developed that lead to better service to clients and to a greater awareness of the roles of people working in the family law system
The Central West (NSW) Family Law Pathways Network will seek to include all of those agencies working in the family law system either directly or indirectly and will include members across the geographical area of Central Western NSW region.
