Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
The Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre Inc(EECLC) continued to provided free legal information, advice, casework and representation to the communities of the Bathurst, Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon local government areas. In 2012-2013 we provided legal information to over 600 callers, and generated 723 advices. EECLC ran legal education sessions on a variety of topics ranging from family law, carers and legal issues, childrens court, and fines and debts to community workers and members of the public. EECLC also coordinated the Cooperative Legal Services Delivery program in the Central Tablelands region and was successful in obtaining funding to provide legal first aid seminars to frontline workers in 2013-2014. EECLC continued to provide a tenancy advice and advocacy service to people with tenancy problems living in the Blue Mountains, and engaged in law reform activity around changes to Victims Compensation. Our client profiles indicate that we are continuing our work of supporting the more socio-economically disadvantaged and marginalised people in our local communities to access the justice system. For more details of our specific activities this year, please read our annual report.
