MLC Youth Week Media Release
This week, 8 - 17 April, is National Youth Week, a time to celebrate the achievements and aspirations of young people, and to recognise the importance of funding youth specific services, like MLC's Youth Legal Service. Our Youth Week Media Release urges the Federal Government to commit to a brighter future for young people by reversing its decision to cut Community Legal Centre funding by 30% in 2017.
