Free legal clinics available now in Fordblock, Owhata, Rotorua

  • Ratings12345 Eds: Wow, we totally tautoko the Rotorua Distric Community Law Centre for this move and thank them for having the understanding and empathy to actively seek ways to provide their services to those who need them most, mauriora!

Rotorua District Community Law Centre are now offering free legal clinics at the Fordlands Community Centre, every 2nd Tues from 10am to 12 noon – the next one is on Tues 28th August.

They are also at the Cottage at St Davids Presbyterian Church Owhata (cnr Reeves and Wharenui Roads) on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, 10am to 12 noon.

Anyone needing this free legal service can either book an appointment with Logan, their receptionist here, on 348 8060, or they can just drop-in (there might be a little wait)

The reason for these new clinics stem from an understanding that although their present site in Pukuatua Street is central and not far from bus stops, they understand there are Mums with young children, kaumatua, people with disabilities and those who simply can’t afford to come into town by bus who would otherwise not have access to a free legal service.

If anyone has any queries, feel free to give me a call. You may have clients who are unaware of our clinics in Fordlands and Owhata, and who may be able to make good use of them
