As a previous employee of a Community Legal Service I am a passionate advocate for the vital services that they deliver. When I was responsible for the Rural Women's Outreach Legal Service, operating out of what was then the Toowoomba Community Legal Service and servicing the entire South West Region, I became acutely aware of the complex issues with intersections between family law, domestic violence and child safety. I have also been CEO of an organisation providing support to people with disabilities so have experience in the discrimination that people with disabilities often face. If I was fortunate enough to become the Member for Groom, I would do all that I could to ensure that vital services continue.
Thank you for writing to me.
