Gippsland Legal Assistance Forum


Aims of Gippsland Legal Assistance Forum 1. To act as a contact point for legal services assisting disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals in the region; 2. To provide a forum to enable legal services and communities of interest to exchange information and identify local issues requiring support or response; 3. To build the capacity of legal services across the region, and 4. To coordinate the promotion of legal services and the delivery of community legal education across the region. Strategy We will meet these aims by: • Being the recognised central point of legal services in Gippsland. Where possible and appropriate, collating information, research and projects which support the aims of GLAF; • Encouraging organisations to take joint positions on issues of common interest, notably advocacy to state and federal governments for more resources for the sector; • Facilitating networking and information sharing; • Representing the sector in multi-sector collaboration; and • Undertaking the establishment of working / project groups, govern their principles and act in a referencing capacity.
