About this fact sheet

This free fact sheet is in Easy English and it explains what a lawyer is and how a lawyer can help a person get ready for going to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal for a hearing for a compulsory treatment plan hearing.

It is intended for people living at the Disability Forensic Assessment and Treatment Service (DFATS). A compulsory treatment plan is to help a person living in DFATS get ready for their future living in the community again. The plan is meant to help that person be safe when they move back to the community and to help other people be safe.
