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. Donations support ECLC to sustain and further develop its work with communities across Melbourne's east.
How will the funds be used?
Donations will be used to provide increased services to the community.
With a dynamic mix of volunteers and paid staff, ECLC uses its limited resources very efficiently to deliver a broad range of services across Melbourne's east, from its offices in Box Hill, Boronia and Healesville and outreach locations. This work includes:
- legal information and referral
- legal advice and casework (ongoing work on a legal matter)
- law reforms and advocacy
- 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 2020-23 Strategic Plan identifies eight 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 Experiencing or At Risk of Elder Abuse
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer Peoples
- People who Experience Language or Cultural Barriers
- People Experiencing or At Risk of Homelessness
- People with a Disability or Mental Illness
