Hands Up For National Evidence of Legal Rights

With the ongoing spread of the Covid pandemic and recent floodings in the Greater Southern Queensland regions, Community Legal Centres are forced to turn away 80 people a week per electorate who need help due to the lack of funding.

At TASC we understand the effect this can have on a person and within the community itself. That is why we support the need to (1) increase funding for regular sector surveys to make better decision making and service delivery and (2) to see an additional investment of 1.5 million dollars every four years to increase the sector’s capacity to quickly respond to the changing legal needs of our community.
