Moorabbin Children’s Court has been upgraded to improve access to services at court as well as safety for children, young people, and families.
The building upgrades include an expanded waiting foyer and registry counter, a new security scanning area, additional interview rooms and offices for court and support services, a dedicated children’s play area and upgrades to registry.
The Children Court’s President, Judge Jack Vandersteen, said the refurbishment of the Moorabbin Children’s Court will improve safety and outcomes for court users.
"Coming to court can be a stressful experience, and often those before the court may be at a time of crisis or experiencing trauma. These upgrades increase the space and in our waiting area and make it much easier to access legal and support services. These changes will improve the experience for those at court and we are proud of what’s been achieved."
