The drug outreach lawyer provides an outreach service at a number of locations in the local area. The drug outreach lawyer works closely with community workers in the drug and alcohol, mental health, housing, health and sex work sectors. An integrated approach underpins the way that the program is delivered. The program provides a highly accessible legal service to individuals with complex health and legal issues.
The Program currently provides legal outreaches at the following community organisations:
- Launch Housing Southbank.
- Sacred Heart Central.
- Sacred Heart Women’s House.
Our drug outreach lawyer also provides training for community organisations and may contribute at both a State and National level to policy and law reform in this area.
