Community legal centres Australia-wide are facing a ‘funding cliff’ in 2017 as Commonwealth government funding looks to be drying up. The likely drop in funding flies in the face of a Productivity Commission Report that sings the praises of community legal centres as important contributors to access to justice.

In this episode, Kate Galloway talks to James Farrell from Community Legal Centres Queensland, about the importance of securing funding for community legal centres across the country to support their important work.
