Legal assistance is still available


THE Peninsula Community Legal Centre will continue to offer legal assistance to people during the coronavirus crisis.

The PCLC is a not-for-profit based in Frankston which offers free legal services to those who need it. Although the doors to the centre are shut during the ongoing pandemic, the centre is continuing to offer services over the phone.

The centre offers advice and assistance in the areas of family law, family violence, tenancy, fines and general law, debt, crime, and employment.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing, the centre will provide duty lawyer services remotely at the Federal Circuit Court in Dandenong and the Magistrates’ Court at Frankston and Moorabbin.

The centre’s social worker is also still available to help with non-legal needs.

Phone appointments can be made by calling 9783 3600. Phone lines are open 9-5 Monday to Friday.
