The Legal Literacy Volunteer Program
Legal Literacy Volunteers help people fill out forms, find the right information at the right time and generally provide a confidential, safe local service when they need it. The Legal Literacy program has the twin aims of improving document literacy and problem solving in rural communities. Trained individual local (non-legal) 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 and our Legal Literacy Volunteers are supported by, and have access to, our solicitors should the need arise.
Legal Literacy Volunteers are 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.
