Community Legal Centres Multi Business Agreement

The centres funded under the programme offer both general and specialist legal services. The Committee supports recommendations such as recognition of the increased costs associated with the increased costs associated with the provision of legal services by CPCs to people living in RRR regions; [805] Whereas CPCs are not in a position to provide their staff with basic and necessary training to improve their skills and to keep abreast of legal changes; [806] and the provision to staff of a study on the extent and types of stress and burnout in the workplace, to be carried out by the National Association of Independent Legal Services, as well as possible methods of reducing or reducing these conditions. [807] The loss of [ancillary benefit tax and income tax exemptions] would have devastating effects on the already underfunded state of municipal legal centres. [809] The centres report an overwhelming demand for legal services from individuals who are no longer entitled to legal aid, cannot afford a private lawyer, or have exhausted legal aid funding before their case is resolved. . . .
