Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
The Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre Inc (EECLC) provides free legal information, advice and representation services to the communities of the Blue Mountains and Central Tablelands regions. In 2016 - 2017 EECLC provided 1,961 instances of information and referrals, 1,035 advices and 182 legal tasks and representation services across a broad range of legal issues. These figures represent a large increase over previous years. EECLC also established a branch office at Bathurst this year, and purchased a car to assist with our expansion of outreach activities across our catchment.EECLC provided community legal education sessions on a variety of topics, including family violence and care and protection to local medical practitioners; sexting, bullying and cybersafety to community workers; and victims support. EECLC also continues to coordinate the Central Tablelands Cooperative Legal Services Delivery program. A free Wills Day project for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in Bathurst was a key highlight this year. The Blue Mountains Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service provided tenancy information, advice and representation services to 207 residential tenants living in the Blue Mountains through the Blue Mountains Tenants.EECLC demographic client data indicates that we are continuing our important work of supporting the more socio-economically disadvantaged and marginalised people in our local communities to access the justice system.
