Innovation and collaboration for better justice outcomes
Community Legal Centres across Australia are driving innovation in service delivery to help the clients and communities we work with achieve the best possible outcomes to the legal challenges they face. This innovation takes many forms including a strong focus on collaboration between CLCs, with other service providers and volunteers, and with communities more broadly.
The ongoing commitment of CLCs to innovation and collaboration is one of our sector’s strongest assets. It is central to ensuring effective responses to legal need in the context of the broad range of challenges faced by disadvantaged people and communities. It is also one of the reasons our sector is so efficient, delivering quality services and positive outcomes within available resources.
The 2016 National CLCs Conference will showcase the innovative and collaborative work of the CLC sector. It will provide opportunities for the sector to share and learn from each other, from partner organisations and communities, and from other experts in the legal assistance field. It will demonstrate and celebrate the fundamental role played by CLCs in driving better justice outcomes within our communities and society as a whole.
