More Information - why partnerships? 

  • Health and community justice partnerships are collaborations between services, bringing legal help into health and community services.
  • We know that legal problems cluster around life challenges like family breakdown, money or housing issues and that vulnerable people often face barriers to accessing legal services.
  • Many people with legal needs will first present to a non-legal professional, such as a community, refuge or health worker. Partnerships offer an opportunity to reach people where they are - when they need help.
  • Integration is a key theme in reforms in the legal assistance, health and community sectors. With many successful examples across Australia, partnerships present an opportunity to increase access to justice and improve outcomes.
