Seeking community partnerships to help improve access to legal aid services

Legal Aid would like to improve access to our services in rural, remote, and/or Aboriginal communities. Our goal is to form partnerships with service providers who will become the face of legal aid in their communities, distributing PLEI, sharing their knowledge about legal aid, and helping people access our services.

The amount of the partnership contracts will be negotiated but are not expected to exceed $10,000 per year. Agreements will be initially for a term ending on March 31, 2012.

We are now inviting proposals for this opportunity from advocacy or service organizations, local Aboriginal organizations, public libraries, hospitals, schools and other educational institutions, neighbourhood houses, local agents and other suitable candidates.

To apply, interested candidates simply need to fill in an application form that is available on the LSS website and email it to LSS. Please note that the application deadline is Friday, April 29, 2011, at 4:30 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.

If you have questions about the application, please email them to communitypartnerships@lss.bc.ca. For more information, please visit our website.
