Central Highlands Community Legal Centre has been providing free legal information, advice, education and referrals to the community for the past 25 years.
The Centre is committed to serving the community as a whole, providing accessible, high quality legal support within our local and regional communities. The Centre relies on both State and Federal funding.
Like many Community Legal Centre's we are provided with recurrent government funding to provide our core services, and as such we are accountable in keeping within the Commonwealth Guidelines for the funding of Community Legal Centre's. Smaller funding grants are eagerly sought for small and medium scale projects from local government and philanthropic organisations.
The Centre delivers its services in a way that contributes to the creation of a fair, just and equitable society. It does this by addressing inequalities in the law and access to legal services through support and empowerment of those members of the community who are most disadvantaged.
Volunteers are essential to Community Legal Services, and enable them to provide services far in excess of those which could be provided by paid workers alone. The Centre has a roster of eager Volunteer Solicitors from Private Firms within Ballarat who donate their time to provide advice and referral to clients.
Promoting respectful relationships & zero tolerance of violence against women.
