Law 4 All

Community education for people living with disability, carers and workers

What we do:
We help people living with disability and community workers to understand the law and how it can affect them.

We assist people to know their rights, understand their responsibilities and navigate confidently through the legal system, knowing when and where to ask for help and advice.

Responding to need:
We deliver community legal education that is relevant and in a style appropriate to the needs of people living with a disability and community workers. Law 4 All is a new legal education project that aims to deliver relevant and high quality legal information in a way that is accessible and respectful of the communication needs and learning styles of   different groups within our community.

We can visit your organisation or group to give you  the information you need.

Responsive and accountable services:
We make sure we respond to identified individual, group and community needs and we
are accountable to the communities we work with.

The breadth and depth of our community and educational experience means that we are able to offer highly specialised education and training (e.g. criminal justice, family violence, discrimination and compensation).

We can design and implement a community education program to suit your needs.

Some suggested topics for people living with disability and community workers:

• The court system and legal services

• What to do when talking to police

• Violence in my home – not OK

• Disclosing my diagnosis to police

• Worried about warrants?

• Bail. A promise to attend court

• Compensation for victims of crime

• Dealing with fines

The Legal Services Commission can also arrange and pay for interpreters to attend our community programs.
