Returning to the office and a new financial year!

As of this Monday 29 June, Street Law is no longer working remotely. On Wednesday, our staff had our first meeting since the return, where we discussed and planned for the new financial year.

As more workplaces return to office around WA, we are looking ahead to the new financial year as a time to adjust to a new working environment that addresses the reduction and prevention of the spread of COVID-19. While we are keen to return to some much-needed normality, we acknowledge that we are returning to a ‘new normal’, where safety and health precautions are more important than ever.

As of next week, we will commence attending the following outreach legal clinic locations:

Fantastic news! Major legislative reform has been achieved. The most important changes are the establishment of a Work and Development Permit Scheme to create genuine alternative options for disadvantaged people to pay off their fines, limiting the ability to hand out prison terms for unpaid fines so that it can only be ordered by the Court, and ending the detrimental effects of license suspensions on people in remote communities, who rely disproportionately on their ability to drive.

With members from the Social Reinvestment WA our Principal Solicitor, Ann-Margaret Walsh, attended Parliament House to celebrate. Street Law congratulates everyone who has worked tirelessly for this achievement.

Thank you Georgia!

Yesterday, we said farewell to Georgia, our Ashurst secondee who has been working with us for the last 10 weeks.

Georgia’s time here has been unique because we have been working remotely for the entire duration of her secondment! Therefore, she was required to adapt not only to a new legal environment, but new working arrangements that were unfamiliar to all of us.

Georgia had the following to say about her time with Street Law:

“I’ve really loved my time volunteering at Street Law. The services that Street Law provides are so essential and it was wonderful to be able to help provide legal assistance to those who would not otherwise have access to it.”

Despite the challenging circumstances in which Georgia joined us, she has made an invaluable contribution to Street Law and its clients. She was a hard-working and diligent member of the team, and was always willing to help out other people. She will be missed!

We would also like to thank Ashurst for their continuing support.
