BCH hosts a free youth lawyer service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for young people aged 25 years and under and their carers/support people.
The youth lawyer provides free, confidential legal advice and is available for appointments at Lucas and other outreach locations—however, during the coronavirus pandemic, the service will be offered virtually or over the phone.
The youth lawyer can assist with a range of legal problems, including fines, criminal charges, intervention orders, victims of crime applications, housing, employment and debt issues. To make an appointment, please contact youth lawyer Katrina Fanning on 0407 854 223 or via email at [email protected] Young people can also attend the drop-in service every second Wednesday at headspace Ballarat (Camp Street).
The service is a collaboration between Youth Law, Ballarat Community Health and Federation University. For more information about the service and legal information for young people and their support workers/people, see this website.
For further information, contact our youth lawyer, Katrina, on the number above, or make an enquiry via the customer service menu to the right-hand side of your screen.
