Due to the government moving to Phase 4 of the COVID-19 response plan, Street Law staff are no longer working remotely.

 

Street Law considers the health and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers as a paramount concern. Following the government moving to phase 4 of the Covid 19 Recovery plan Street Law is no longer working remotely and we have all returned according to a plan of action developed over the past month.

 

As of Monday 6 July, Street Law will be commencing attending clinics at St Pat’s, Passages and Tranby. For more details of these outreach clinics, please follow this link

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

OUR UPDATES

Thank you, Anthony!

Anthony started as a volunteer with us on February 2019 and remained with us to complete his Practical Legal Training until August 2020, dedicating an entire 18 months with us! Anthony assisted us a great deal over his time with us including contribution to the development of Community Legal Education materials and delivery of training. Anthony was dedicated and passionate about our cause and assisted many clients with difficult legal issues. Anthony said the following about his time with us:

“I am incredibly grateful to have worked with Street Law. During my time, I saw not only the very real and harsh realities of homeless Western Australians, but also a group of staff solely driven by the mission of making the lives of these Western Australians better. While it was often disheartening to see the extent of homelessness in WA and the many ways in which it affects individuals, it was equally as heartening to be a part of an organisation that was committed to reducing this inequality, and to know that Street Law will continue to advocate for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in WA. I am thoroughly appreciative of my time with Street Law, and would urge anyone considering how to best use their legal skills and time to consider working with Street Law towards their goal of ending homelessness in WA.”

We are grateful for all the time and passion that Anthony has dedicated to Street Law Centre and his presence is sorely missed!

Thank you Sigourney!

Last week, our Dentons secondee Sigourney finished her 12-week placement with Street Law. Similarly to other secondees who joined us at the time, Sigourney commenced her secondment with us as we transitioned to working remotely. Sigourney was a highly knowledgeable and diligent member of the Street Law team, and attended our Passages outreach legal clinics remotely. About her time with Street Law, Sigourney had the following to say:

"I am very thankful for having had the opportunity to volunteer at Street Law. My time with Street Law was a humbling and rewarding experience and I am grateful to have been able to assist with the amazing work Street Law does for young people at risk of and experiencing homelessness."

Thank you again to Dentons for their continued support.

Thank you Tessa!

Last Friday, our Corrs Chambers Westgarth secondee, Tessa, had her last day with Street Law. Tessa’s secondment began shortly prior to Street Law’s move towards working remotely, and she adjusted rapidly to a changing work environment. About her time with Street Law, Tessa said the following:

“I’ve really loved my time at Street Law and have found it very rewarding providing assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in the community. Volunteering has also given me a greater insight into the struggles people experiencing homelessness have to deal with every day and I think Street Law is an amazing organisation for everything they do for these people!”

Tessa was a fantastic addition to the Street Law team, but it’s not just us who think that – Tessa worked on a matter in cooperation with a case worker from The Beacon, who gave extremely positive feedback to Street Law regarding the beneficial way in which the client was helped with their matters.

Thank you and all the best for the future Tessa!
