WSCLC Celebrates Volunteer Week

Clcp Volunteer Week

For National Volunteer Week 2021, Western Sydney Community Legal Centre (WSCLC) took the opportunity to thank our tremendous volunteer team for the work they do. The theme for this year’s National Volunteer Week was ‘Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine’. In this spirit, we took the time to recognise the efforts of our volunteers, reconnect through social events, and reimagine the volunteer experience.  

The Community Legal Centre Program (CLCP) currently has 30 volunteers from 5 different universities working across our Parramatta and Rooty Hill offices. Our volunteers work on the front-line of the CLCP and the Western Sydney Tenants Service (WESTS). They are responsible for communicating with clients at intake, helping with legal work, undertaking research, and assisting with countless others tasks that help our Centre function.  

WSCLC could not perform the work we do without the help of our volunteers. They are vital to shaping our client’s experience and ensuring our organisation has capacity to help as many people as possible across our catchment of 1.5 million.  

To reconnect and reimagine, we have circulated a survey to gather feedback and ensure we continually improve our volunteers’ experience. We hope to continue to improve our volunteer experience through feedback, training, and opening up opportunities for new tasks and experiences. In early June, we were also excited to have our volunteers come along to a Trivia Night run at Club Parramatta – something we hope to make a regular event in the future!  

If you would like to volunteer with WSCLC, we recruit four times each year with the next round of recruitment expected in July 2021. Keep an eye on our website for updates!
