Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
The Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre Inc (EECLC) provides free legal information, advice and casework to the communities of the Bathurst, Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region and surrounding areas. In 2015 - 2016 EECLC assisted over 650 callers with legal information and referrals, provided 753 advices, and opened 87 cases to advocate on behalf of clients across a broad range of areas in family and civil law. EECLC also continued to provide tenancy advice and advocacy to residential tenants living in the Blue Mountains, with over 260 clients assisted this year.EECLC provided legal education sessions on a variety of topics including care and protection issues, LGBTIQ rights and the law, and elder abuse in 2015-2016. A highlight of this year was our Bushfires and Insurance project, funded by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet. The project provided community legal education sessions to residents and business owners around insurance and bushfire, and involved the development of written resources and a video clip to share residents experiences of the October 2013 bushfires.EECLC continued to coordinate the Cooperative Legal Services Delivery program in the Central Tablelands region this period, developing a new legal clinic with Headspace in Bathurst this period. Other outreaches expanded or initiated this year include weekly attendance at Bathurst and Lithgow Courts, and the establishment of a new clinic at Lithgow Community Projects. 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.
