Youthlaw operates on very few funds and yet has impact that improves the lives of vulnerable young Victorians every day. lots of energy and goodwill. in 2016 we assisted over 1600 young people.
Every dollar you donate will be lovingly used and stretched! Most of the financial donations we receive go towards salaries so we can keep employing our fabulous lawyers, administration workers and Policy Officer & Director .
We need funds to keep our Outreach legal service going beyond July 2017 when funding will finish. Our outreach lawyer travels to 5 Headspace Centres and 5 other youth centres in Victoria as far away as Wodonga and Warrnambool. They assist young people in clinics, at court and by Skype and by phone.
We need dollars to keep employing our fabulous admin staff. . They co-ordinate our team of volunteers , training them up and supporting them. They produce our newsletter & update our website.
We need more funding for our Homeless youth clinic lawyers who assist young people at our daily clinic at Frontyard Youth Services. We also have a dedicated Friday fines clinic staffed by a wonderful paralegal volunteers supervised by our lawyers
We would also love dollars to do more legal education. Our lawyers squeeze this in to their already busy jobs. It equips young people with skills to deal with the law or know when they should seek help.
From early 2018 our advocacy program will require further funding . This program advocates for the big system changes needed to improve outcomes for young people.
