Workshop on planning evidence-based legal services

May 17, 2019 |

Data and collaboration are key elements in planning effective legal assistance services.    

Victoria Legal Aid are running a workshop to share some of the data resources and collaborative planning approaches they’ve developed for the sector planning project to:

  • update you on what we’re doing now to support evidence-based planning
  • get your input on what’s working for you in service planning
  • use in your own planning. 

The workshop will be useful for community legal centre managers, policy and project staff, administration workers and anyone interested in finding out more about using data and client-centred approaches to plan effective legal services.
