A healthy partnership

A healthy partnership

By Tessa Boyd-Caine

Voluntary Associations/Pro Bono 


What began as a two-year seed grant to recruit a CEO has evolved into a successful partnership between a top-tier law firm and a charitable start-up. In 2012 Peter Noble of Bendigo's Loddon-Campaspe Community Legal Centre (LCCLC) went on a study tour to the US to investigate how legal services were integrating into health settings to better reach vulnerable people. Five years later, there are more than 20 health justice partnerships (HJPs) integrating community lawyers in health services in Australia. In 2016 Health Justice Australia was established as a national centre to support their effectiveness and expansion. Throughout this, the Clayton Utz Foundation has provided critical financial support. The foundation funded Peter Noble's research and the LCCLC, and more recently provided a grant for the establishment of Health Justice Australia. These philanthropic contributions complemented Clayton Utz's strong culture of pro bono legal practice, through which it now also supports legal services in a number of HJPs.
