From time to time, CLCA undertakes projects that are in the public interest, the interest of its members and focus on a particular area of work.
See below for more information on recent projects.
Cooperative Education for Enterprise Development (CEED) is a formal program designed to link the abilities and training of students with the research and development needs of progressive organisations in the wider community. CEED is offered through UWA and Curtin University.
The CLCA (WA) is pleased to be one of the first organisations to participate in the new pro bono part of the program.
This project commenced with the assistance of an intern from the McCusker Centre whose main focus was on researching and planning the Association’s communications and marketing plan.
The Models for Sustainability project is exploring sustainability within the sector from a particular perspective - that the community legal services that people experiencing vulnerability and disadvantage require, are provided to them in an effective and consistent structure. It refers to the sustainability of services to people, rather than the sustainability of an individual service or centre.
Drawing on what occurred in Victoria, in the lead up to their 2014 state election, a coalition of organisations across the community sector has joined together to call on the next Western Australian Government to commit to improving the systems that are meant to keep victims of family and domestic violence safe and hold perpetrators to account for their violence.
