Street Law Centre

Street Law is a free outreach legal service for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness in Western Australia.

OUR UPDATES

What do you think of when you think of volunteering?

Donations? Bake sales? Soup kitchens?

All these things are fantastic but it's not really what we think of when we think of volunteering, because it's not what our volunteers do.

We think of ways to provide social justice through legal help.
We think of being able to provide legal advice in areas our clients go to.
We think of intense research, strategising and persistence: this is what our volunteers do and allow us to achieve.

Really, every week is #volunteerweek for us if we measure it by the difference our volunteers make for us and our clients. Thanks volunteers - and to all of you who share about us and recommend us to others as a volunteering opportunity!

For National Volunteer Week, we got our volunteers to speak out about why they volunteer.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers for all their hard work; we're privileged to have volunteers who are passionate about what they do and work with enthusiasm.

Takin' to the Streets!

Every Law Week we hit up Wellington Street and provide legal services! It's a great opportunity to get outside and extend the reach of our usual outreach.

Massive thanks to the team at Street Doctor for having us along. Make sure you say hi to our amazing team, Gatwiri & Ann-Margaret if you're passing by!

We've kicked off Law Week by launching our ID App at Uniting Care West.

Since 2011, we've been providing legal assistance at Tranby Centre, with the assistance from secondee lawyers from Corrs Chambers Westgarth Careers.

It was fantastic to launch the ID App with an official opening by the Chief Justice of WA, Peter Quinlan, our clients, volunteers, the fantastic team at UCW & Tranby, and the people who made the ID app happen: the team at The University of Western Australia & Corrs Chambers Westgarth through UWA unit, Legal 'APP'titude.

Thanks to everyone who came, made breakfast, and who helped out at our following ID clinic!This morning we joined forces with Street Law Centre WA Inc and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Peter Quinlan to launch an innovative new ID App.

The app was developed for Street Law Centre to allow people experiencing homelessness to access identification documents, such as bank records, birth certificates and photo ID cards, connecting them with housing, employment, education and other vital services.

The technology was created by UWA Law School students and supported by Corrs Chambers Westgarth Careers and tech company Checkbox.

The App was launched as part of Law Week 2019 #LawyersMakeADifference and was followed by a Street Law ID clinic at Tranby. Find out more here: bit.ly/2LS6VwD
