Welcome to Street Law’s Volunteer induction and resource portal. Please remember to logout on completion of your session.
Welcome to Street Law Centre WA Inc (Street Law) induction program. We are a community legal centre (CLC) whose mission is to increase access to justice for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness by providing free and confidential legal information, advice and casework. Street Law also offers comprehensive community legal education and seeks to address systemic legal issues through its law reform and advocacy campaign.
We look forward to working with you and hope you find your time with us enjoyable and fulfilling.
This Module (Module One) has been designed to induct all new volunteers and members of staff into Street Law so that before you begin, you:
- Have an understanding of the nature of CLCs, homelessness and Street Law; and
- Have a knowledge of the practical information involving the office itself.
Depending on your role, you may also be required to complete Module Two (see below).
Module Two is specifically designed to induct volunteers and staff who have legal roles at Street Law. Please confirm with your supervisor if you are unsure which modules you are required to do.
You don’t need to race through the induction; take your time when reading the information, explore the program, and follow the links. This module and other information will be readily available to you throughout your time at Street Law.

This Module (Module Three) contains information about how to triage.
Legal services provided by Street Law are in high demand. Given our resources are limited effective triaging of client matters is integral to maximising efficiency in the provision of client services. Being able to triage is an important skill for all our volunteers and secondees to have.
Volunteers and Secondee’s will be expected to answer the 1800 phone line (free call) in the office and triage accordingly.
