The Legal Literacy Program - No longer operating
The State Government was unable to re-fund the program - therefore it is no longer operating. Behind the scenes work is currently underway to try and re-establish the program.
A LITTLE ABOUT LEGAL LITERACY VOLUNTEERS
The Legal Literacy program had the twin aims of improving document literacy and problem solving in rural communities. Trained individual local volunteers work with local clients in their own communities to address issues BEFORE they require legal advice or intervention.
The LCLC as a not-for-profit organisation provides free legal advice to the community in a variety of areas. Our Legal Literacy Volunteers were supported by, and had access to, our solicitors should the need arise.
Legal Literacy Volunteers were our ambassadors in their community and aim to foster community awareness of the law, making access to legal assistance more equitable and accessible to the community.
