Legal Health Check

The Legal Health Check is a resource which assists community workers to identify the legal needs of their vulnerable clients and to connect those clients with community lawyers for legal assistance.

Each Legal Health Check works like a clear menu, asking the right questions to diagnose and prioritise legal need. Without your involvement, clients might not recognise the legal dimension of some problems.

The questions in the Legal Health Checks cover the legal issues that vulnerable clients are most likely to experience, and those that will cause the most problems for the client if they are not sorted out.

The Legal Health Check does not create a legal relationship between a community worker, the client or any legal service, and it does not guarantee legal assistance for the client’s potential legal needs. It is a collaborative service delivery tool, that helps connect clients to the right lawyers by asking the right questions.
