PCLC celebrates their vital volunteers

May 31, 2018

Acknowledgements were underway on Wednesday night at Functions on the Bay as Peninsula Community Legal Centre (PCLC) celebrated the work of their vital volunteers as part of National Volunteer Week 2018.

Various awards were given out with Moreheads Lawyers taking out the Law Firm Award. Founder and Principal, Michael Morehead is a long term volunteer at PCLC and Moreheads Lawyers offer a fee-reduced service to some of the Centre’s clients.

PCLC specialise in family law/violence, fines and tenancy issues; with offices in Frankston, Bentleigh, Cranbourne, Rosebud and Frankston North we are one of the largest community based legal centres in Australia. Lawyers at the Centre also provide outreach services to Hastings and Chelsea.

PCLC encourages volunteering as it enables our vital services to achieve greater reach. This year’s theme for National Volunteer Week, “Give a little, change a lot”, encapsulates the experience of volunteering for PCLC: it gives people a unique chance to be part of a highly motivated team of professionals. Our volunteers gain a sense of satisfaction from giving their time and expertise to something that benefits society without receiving monetary reward.

Volunteering Australia, CEO Adrienne Picone said, “One in three Australians volunteer in formal settings through organisations and institutions. This figure does not account for the millions of other Australians who informally give their time to volunteer through other activities and initiatives.”1
