About This Webinar
A quiet revolution is taking place across Australia and it’s transforming the way some of the most vulnerable in our community access legal services. In a practitioner-led movement, community lawyers have been moving out of their offices and into the most unlikely of places – hospitals and community health settings – to collaborate with health services and their patients to address unmet, health-harming legal need. Known as health justice partnerships (HJPs), these collaborations work by embedding legal help into healthcare services and teams.
Health Justice Partnerships will explore the growing body of evidence that shows there are groups of people who are vulnerable to intersecting legal and health problems, but who are unlikely to turn to legal services for solutions. Facilitated by Tony Davies, CEO, Social Futures, a panel examines what takes a HJP partnership beyond ‘status quo’ services in terms of purpose, structure, activity and resourcing.
- Tessa Boyd Caine, CEO, Health Justice Australia
- Jane Cipants, Director Client Service, Legal Aid
