We support thousands of people every year – ensuring vulnerable people, and particularly people experiencing mental illness or impacted by the trauma of family violence, receive high-quality advice, advocacy and legal representation.
Ruah Legal Service, including the Mental Health Law Centre, is expanding – and keen to recruit new, passionate lawyers to its team. The expansion is thanks to a significant funding boost from the Commonwealth Government and represents another growth phase for the leading community legal service.
Ruah is pleased to have introduced 10 days of paid Family and Domestic Violence leave for Ruah employees, with that leave immediately available to support team members who are experiencing personal family and domestic violence.
Ruah’s innovative Care and Protection Service has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the vulnerable families it has supported in its first year.
Law Week 2022 offered Ruah Legal Services and the Mental Health Law Centre the opportunity to showcase ‘One Ruah’. We were pleased to host a series of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events at the WA Museum Boola Bardip for the legal profession.
We’re available when you need it.
Convenient downloadable forms for you.
