Eastern Community Legal Centre is collecting funds to expand its services to communities and people experiencing disadvantage. While governments provide financial support, demand for services far outweighs these resources. The generosity of donations supports ECLC to sustain and further develop its work in communities across Melbourne's east.
How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to provide increased services to the community. Using a dynamic mix of over 100 volunteers along with professional staff, ECLC is able to utilise its limited resources very efficiently deliver a broad range of services across Melbourne's east, from its offices in Box Hill, Boronia and Healesville and 11 outreach locations. This work includes:
- legal information and referral
- legal advice and casework (on-going work on a legal matter)
- advocacy on Family Violence issues
- community development projects
- community legal education with a range of target groups.
ECLC also undertakes a range of community development and partnership projects including education, publications and advocacy. ECLC's 2015-18 Strategic Plan identifies seven Priority Communities for both direct assistance and community development and education are:
- Children and Young People
- People Experiencing or At Risk of Family Violence
- Indigenous Australians
- Older People
- People who Experience Language or Cultural Barriers
- People Experiencing or At Risk of Homelessness
- People with a Disability or Mental Illness
