Annual Report 2013 - 2014

Managing our organisation

Meeting the needs of the most disadvantaged people in our community, who have multiple and complex legal and non legal needs, requires a skilled workforce and adequate resourcing.

In 2014, 45 Aboriginal people made up 5.7% of our staff, surpassing the State Government benchmark of 2.6%. They work in a range of roles from field officers and administrative staff to lawyers and mediation organisers.
