BCLS checks the legal pulse of Corio for Law Week 2018

In celebration of Law Week 2018 the BCLS team headed out to the Corio Community Health Centre and provided free legal health checks and information to the local community.

We engaged with over 70 community members and completed almost 30 legal health checks with community members. Legal health checks are an important way of identifying people’s hidden legal issues and connecting people with free legal advice.

This year our Law Week event marked the sixth year of our health justice partnership with Barwon Health where we provide regular legal outreach services at the Corio Community Health Centre every Monday between 4 – 6pm.

Barwon Community Legal Service also runs outreach in partnership with the health sector at Colac Area Health every Monday between 1 – 3pm and Norlane Child and Family Centre every Monday between 10.30 – 12.30pm.

For more information about our outreach services or to make an appointment please give us a call on 1300 430 599.
