Caxton Legal Centre represents the interests of people who are disadvantaged or on a low income when they come into contact with the law. We do this by strategically advocating to government, providing legal advice and social work services, publishing legal information and building community awareness about the issues faced by the people we help.
The social worker is responsible for working with Queenslanders affected by the February 2022 floods who receive legal advice from Caxton and indicate an interest in social work follow up. These people may bring a wide variety of presenting issues and circumstances. Often they are experiencing extreme disadvantage. The short to medium-term social work intervention aims to help people to improve their wellbeing and quality of life through a focus on their needs and capabilities; access social justice and resources and protection of their human rights.
