Redfern Legal Centre: Supporting communities during COVID-19
Redfern Legal Centre is committed to maintaining support to communities across NSW during the coronavirus outbreak.
We recognise this is an extremely distressing and difficult time, and we know that the impact of COVID-19 is already affecting people experiencing vulnerability the hardest.
With this in mind, protecting the health and wellbeing of our clients, volunteers and staff is paramount, both to slow the spread of the virus and to allow us to maintain critical free legal support to the communities we serve.
Social distancing is a key measure that will help keep the community safe.
All RLC staff and volunteers will be working off-site from Monday 23 March. RLC is dedicated to providing innovative legal solutions in these challenging times, and we are currently putting in place systems that will allow us to maintain our high level of service delivery.
Responses to the COVID-19 pandemic are evolving day-by-day, and we will continue to monitor and adapt our services in response. We don’t yet have all the solutions, but we will continue to serve you with tenacity, dedication and heart.
As the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Dr Michelle Bachelet stated last week, “COVID-19 is a test for our societies, and we are all learning and adapting as we respond to the virus. Human dignity and rights need to be front and centre in that effort, not an afterthought.”
As always, reach out to us if you need support.
