RLC works in partnership with community workers, advocates and lawyers, by providing legal training and resources, so that you can better assist your clients.

  • We train workers in NSW and occasionally Australia-wide.
  • We present a calendar of training webinars (online workshops) - see below.
  • We record webinars and videos for viewing at a convenient time.
  • We can also come to you, at a time and place that suits you - ask us about customised workplace training.

NEWS FLASH! In light of the many legal problems currently impacting your clients, RLC is waiving all fees on our Community Worker Training Program for the time being, in order to reach more workers and have a positive impact on more clients.
