Hope Community Services

Virtual Legal Aid offices launched this week operating out of HOPE’s offices in Esperance, Leonora and Karratha.

Western Australia’s most vulnerable community members will now have better access to legal advice thanks to the initiative, with the state’s Attorney-General noting that the virtual offices will enable the agency to deliver services in locations where Legal Aid does not have a physical office.

In partnership with local community organisations at each location, 10 virtual offices have been set up across the state’s metropolitan and regional areas, a statement explained, with Legal Aid already assessing other locations around WA for a second tranche of virtual offices.

“Taking the law where it is needed most”, the initiative has been kicked off with metropolitan office locations at Armadale, Joondalup, Mandurah and Midland, while regional virtual offerings can now be found at Esperance, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Karratha, Leonora and Meekatharra.

Screens with cameras have been installed at community legal centres that have partnered with Legal Aid to host the service, it was noted.

The launch was covered by GWN7 – link below.

The plan is to make face to face legal advice available to people in remote areas.
