WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

That is a very good question and we are happy to answer it.

My Community Legal has a class-leading and volunteer-leveraging model. In terms of expense per client advice, we are the most efficient Community Legal Centre in the state – by far. Here is where our money goes:

  • Wages of our Coordinator (our Principal Lawyer, Committee, advising Lawyers, Law Students and other Volunteers donate ALL their time);
  • Rent (at charity rates donated by Gold Coast City Council);
  • Membership fees to Community Legal Centres Queensland;
  • National Accrediation expenses to Community Legal Centres Australia;
  • Professional indemnity, public liability and other insurances;
  • Office, stationery and printing expenses.
