Free legal help available to volunteer organisations

Jason Falinski said free legal resources would be made available to community organisations in the Beaches to better support volunteers.

 

The Turnbull Government is investing $250,000 to fund the delivery of online legal resources to help not-for-profit organisations and volunteers.

 

Justice Connect will provide legal support to organisations in Mackellar to help keep volunteers safe and better manage their operations. Online resources, including apps,
e-learning modules, webinars, and a comprehensive national guide of best practice, will be rolled out later this year.

“Our volunteers in the Beaches are donating their time and skills to make our communities better,” Mr Falinski said.

 

“We all owe an enormous debt to our volunteers, and one way to honour that debt is helping the organisations that support volunteers.

 

The funding is provided as part of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership.
