Family Law Pathways Network conference in Hobart

Close to 200 professionals working in the family law sector came together in Hobart to attend the inaugural Tasmanian Family Law Pathways Network (FLPN) Conference to promote greater collaboration within the sector.

TLA’s Family Advocacy and Support Services lawyer Sally Hunt discussed at the conference how FASS assists clients using real-world scenarios.

“It was a great opportunity to present and to talk about the service to so many people all in one setting so that people could understand more about how the Family Advocacy and Support Service can help families,” Sally said.

The Launceston FASS lawyer said the conference was a “good opportunity to do some old-fashioned networking” and build contacts and connections

It was the first conference for the network that was formed in 2006 and is guided by interested professionals working to strengthen referral relationships with those supporting Tasmanian families through the difficult journey of separation.

The network welcomes all professionals from within the broader family law sector, who assist families
in any capacity to manage the challenges of separation.

FLPN Project Officer Carolyn Self said the conference would host several presentations followed by panel discussions. “This event aims to promote true collaborative practice within the family law sector to benefit separating families within our state,” she said.
