Justice Connect's quarterly update

Welcome to the third issue of Re:connect, Justice Connect's quarterly supporter update.

In this issue:

We are feeling quite chuffed – we have won an award and are a finalist for two others! We'll take a look at all the great work the staff at Justice Connect have done, as well as reflect back on some of our advocacy in homelessness space, and give you a quick update on our great 25th birthday party from last week.

 

Awards and finalists

Being nominated, let alone named as a finalists or even winning is a boost for our staff. Importantly though these accolades help promote our work so there is greater awareness of what we can do, helping us reach more people and groups. The work of our Homeless Law team, and our Not-for-profit Law and Self-Representation services all depend on fabulous pro bono lawyers and very often non-legal partners.

 

Excellence in Ending Homelessness Award

Homeless Law has received the Excellence in Ending Homelessness for Adults Award at the 2017 Victorian Homelessness Achievement Awards. 

The award commendation says:

"Justice Connect Homeless Law is the leader in the legal assistance sector in developing innovative models and new partnerships to meet the legal and non-legal needs of people experiencing homelessness. They are renowned for providing leadership in advocacy around the laws and regulations impacting those experiencing homelessness."
