Barwon Community Legal Service (BCLS) is partnering with Diversitat to provide free legal help to CALD Communities through a new legal assistance program.
The CALD Communities Legal Assistance Program will support culturally and linguistically diverse clients who are engaged with Diversitat by providing free legal advice, information and referral on a range of civil law problems. These include issues related to family violence, family law, child support, Centrelink, unpaid fines, consumer law, debt, housing and employment.
A dedicated BCLS lawyer will be available to help CALD community members understand their legal rights and provide legal help where required. BCLS is working closely with Diversitat staff involved in working directly with CALD communities to ensure that they are fully aware of the legal assistance available and can assist with referring people to BCLS when this assistance is requested.
