2016 Community Legal Centres NSW Award
Community Legal Centres NSW (CLCNSW) seeks nominations from its members for the 2016 Community Legal Centres NSW Award. In 2016, the award aims to highlight the range of activities devised and deployed by NSW CLCs to provide effective and appropriate services to individuals and communities and increase their awareness of their legal rights and the legal resources available to help them resolve legal issues. Such activities can include discrete or ongoing projects and programs, including community legal education, plain language information or new legal services. To be eligible, an activity must have been generated and managed by a NSW Community Legal Centre. Projects can be either ongoing or completed.

For more information, see the Community Legal Centres NSW Award Guidelines. Nominations for the 2016 Community Legal Centres NSW Award close on Thursday 30 June 2016.
