New legal outreach service launched in Monbulk
Communities in the Yarra Ranges will have greater access to free legal help for family violence, debt and other issues with the launch of ECLC’s new outreach service at Monbulk Living and Learning Centre.
In the 2015-16 year, twenty per cent of people assisted by ECLC lived in the Yarra Ranges. However, a legal needs survey undertaken by the Centre identified that communities in Monbulk and nearby Dandenong Ranges suburbs faced unique barriers to accessing legal help, largely due to public transport issues.
ECLC would like to thank Yarra Ranges Council for their support of the new service.
Community lawyers will be available for appointments at on the first and third Wednesday of each month for a trial period running until December 2017.
Please contact ECLC to make an appointment.
