LawRight April 2022 – Queensland Legal Walk 3

Just before you relax….

We hope all LawRight supporters are planning a well-deserved rest, but before you log off for Easter, please register for the Queensland Legal Walk.

The BAQ President’s team have registered and are raring to walk at 7am, Tuesday 17 May. They’ve already raised over $900 for LawRight!

Prompt registrations save our small team time and encourage us. Please register your team or yourself today:

The walk will help keep the Magistrates Court self-representation service and financial counselling service open.

LawRight also self-funds our Health Justice Partnership at the Mater Young Adults Health Centre (MYAHC). One young adult receiving support at MYAHC shared:

“My roommate signed up to pay a debt belonging to a previous housemate for unpaid electricity bills. Without consulting,  he signed us up to a pay a rate that factoring in Centrelink being my only income I was left without money to eat or function. [Workers at MYAHC suggested I bring up the problem with LawRight]. [LawRight]  helped me plan and act out opening lines of communications with my roommates… and with the Energy Company and organisations to help. They made the process painless and were very helpful in providing knowledge about aspects of things I had totally no idea about. I would recommend Lawright to anyone in a position where they are overwhelmed… I always felt safe.”
