ANNOUNCEMENT Dear Clients and Stakeholders, No doubt you are following the news of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as carefully as we are. To keep everyone safe, the BGCLS is adopting a number of precautions to ensure the continued health of our staff, clients and visitors.
In light of the latest advice from the Victorian Government our office will be closed to the public, effective immediately; however we plan to remain operational during regular hours.
Changes to provision of services, until further notice, are as follows:
Drop-in clinics will now be telephone advice clinics
Clients are to make contact before the session to be allocated to a clinic
Face to face prison visits will be cancelled with staff to provide advice appointments to those clients on the scheduled days via telephone
Volunteer Solicitor clinics will be cancelled until further notice
Community Legal Education will be cancelled until further notice
Co-located services will proceed with advice via telephone
We appreciate co-operation of all clients and stakeholders during this difficult time and hope to resume normal operations as soon as possible. Please call the office if you require assistance: 5331 5999.
