Volunteers are integral to PCLC’s operations, with more than 120 legal and non-legal volunteers enhancing and extending our service delivery. Some of our wonderful volunteers have been volunteering with us for over 30 years, and we were delighted to welcome and conduct our usual training sessions for a considerable number of new recruits over the past year.
In addition to our volunteers, we also have a passionate and dedicated network of supporters from the legal community who provide a wide range of pro bono services in support of our work.
Our annual Volunteer and Supporters Dinner is one of the most important events on our calendar, it provides the opportunity for us to express our gratitude for the outstanding dedication of all of our supporters. This year, the keynote speaker Tarang Chawla spoke movingly about the murder of his sister and the impact of men’s violence across the community. Emma Dunlevie, the Pro Bono Practice Manager at Russell Kennedy Lawyers, spoke about the firm’s important pro bono work and the firm’s longstanding relationship with PCLC.
The success of our work is dependent on the contributions of all of our volunteers and supporters, and we are immensely grateful to them all.
