Legal Aid News - March 2021

9 Mar 2021

The March 2021 issue of Legal Aid News is now available.

In this month’s edition, you’ll read about a few of our recent successes – one of our lawyers, Nicole Dwyer (née Ford), has been appointed as a magistrate, our first joint child protection conference was held for over 600 participants, and we are celebrating the first six months of our grants tracker to assist clients in managing their grant applications.

You’ll learn how we can assist separated parents to claim higher benefit payments, about our submission to the inquiry into the Consumer Credit Protection Amendment bill, and our involvement in a successful court program diverting defendants with drug and alcohol problems to undertake supervised treatment. 

This edition also includes information about our programs and publications, along with useful resources and events for community workers, private practitioners, and the general public.
