Whittlesea Community Legal Service Volunteering Without volunteers the work of WCLS would be severely diminished. The rate of community participation in our service is a source of pride for the team. Approximately 40 active volunteers help provide our legal services. Volunteers are involved as para-legals assisting with research and casework, legal receptionists and in-take workers and as volunteer solicitors. During the year, 35 volunteers were recruited including 9 volunteer solicitors to assist with our night service work. Our volunteers not only enable us to be better at what we do, but they are an invaluable resource to the broader community. To all our volunteers, past and present, we extend our thanks and appreciation. 23
