Are you concerned about how cuts to legal aid will affect CALC's services?
Legal Aid funding has been cut by 30-45%. Funding to clinics is cut by 16%, and cuts will continue to increase. We need your help! See the "Stop Legal Aid Cuts" website for information on how you can help. If you are a service provider concerned about how cuts will impact on CALC services, see our special information sheet for community partners.
Government eliminating CICB

Helping our local community
We support the community in local events to effect change. We speak to community groups, clubs, churches, schools, adult education programs, social service organizations, and others who want to learn more about the law or our services.
