"Balmain State Greens MP Jamie Parker said it was unacceptable that a stand-off between the governments over a relatively small annual amount of $82,000 would result in the service shutting its doors on vulnerable women."

The State Government has committed to 12 months' funding for a specialised domestic violence service which as threatened with closure.

The Women's Family Law Court Support Service has operated for over a decade helping more than 100 victims of domestic violence each month. Due to an impasse between the federal and state governments over funding, the service was set to close this month.

Balmain State Greens MP Jamie Parker said it was unacceptable that a stand-off between the governments over a relatively small annual amount of $82,000 would result in the service shutting its doors on vulnerable women.

Mr Parker welcomed the reprieve for a service which had "given practical assistance to abused women."
