OUR UPDATES

Thank you, Phoebe!Phoebe has recently finished her 10-week secondment with us from Ashurst. Our Ashurst secondees work with our solicitor Anna on Wednesdays assisting with our Passages legal outreach clinic. It has been a pleasure to work with Phoebe. Phoebe said the following about her time with us: My time with Street Law has been incredibly rewarding, fulfilling and eye opening. The legal system is often confusing and confronting, but for those who are homeless or facing homelessness, it can be another major strain in already difficult circumstances. It was an honour to work with Anna and the team to assist the most vulnerable members of our community, that would otherwise be forced to navigate the system alone. Street Law does such amazing and much needed work for our community and I truly feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of such a fantastic team. We wish you all the best for your future legal career Phoebe! Thank you Ashurst for your continued support. #streetlawcentrewa #accesstojustice #endhomelessness #slcvolunteers ... See MoreSee Less
