The Women’s Legal Centre relies heavily on the assistance given by volunteers. The Centre is a small community legal centre with very limited resources. Volunteers work at the Centre each week in a range of different ways. The assistance given to the Centre by volunteers increases the service the Centre is able to offer to the community. The Women’s Legal Centre appreciates the assistance it receives from volunteers.
The Centre has volunteers assisting in a number of ways:
Each year approximately 250 extra women are helped with their legal matter by being able to access a volunteer solicitor at the Centre.
The Centre relies heavily on volunteer students to help with the day-to-day operations of the Centre. The Centre is able to undertake more community legal education and law reform activities because of the assistance given by volunteer students.
The Board plays a vital role in maintaining the governance and setting the strategic direction of the Centre. The Board is comprised of volunteer women from across a range of sectors.
