Providing free and timely one-stop legal support for disadvantaged groups

 

 

 

The venture provides free and timely one-stop legal support for disadvantaged groups facing legal issues, particularly grassroots female workers and families affected by domestic violence.

The venture partners with non-profit organisations (NPOs) to offer community legal clinic sessions to provide early and preliminary legal support and advice to their service users for free, aiming to reduce the needs for litigation by early intervention to cases. It also increases beneficiaries’ confidence in facing legal issues. Through these services, the venture also aims to strengthen the capacities of NPOs in managing and supporting their service users’ legal problems, and enhance public awareness about the availability of legal support for the disadvantaged groups.
