National Legal Assistance Partnership Review

Submission to: Independent Reviewer

The National Legal Assistance Partnership (NLAP) is an agreement between the State, Territory and Federal Governments about the funding and oversight of legal assistance services. Funding is provided through the NLAP to legal aid commissions, community legal centres and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community legal services. In accordance with the agreement, the NLAP is being independently reviewed. Financial counsellors often work closely with consumer lawyers in services funded by the NLAP. Our submission describes the complementary roles of financial counsellors, capability workers and consumer lawyers and how each supports the other.FCA Submission re NLAP
