Legal Workshop

20240229 Legal Talk 01

Nowadays, the law permeates every aspect of our daily lives: clothing, food, housing, transportation, birth, ageing, illness, death, education, employment, entrepreneurship, investment, etc. Legal knowledge, closely related to our daily life, work, and rights, is a basic shared understanding we should and must possess.

Only by "understanding the law" can we enhance our legal awareness, abide by and use the law, and protect ourselves with the law. Lack of understanding of the law can lead to weak legal awareness and, consequently, a higher risk of violating the law. To address this, Chung Wah Community Care (CWCC) regularly invites the Northern Suburbs Community Legal Centre (NSCLC) to hold legal workshops at the Balcatta and Willetton Community Hubs. These workshops aim to help seniors understand the importance of legal knowledge and solve legal-related issues they encounter daily.

Last week's workshop focused on legal knowledge related to housing. Based on the needs of the attending seniors, speakers from NSCLC introduced the details of applying for public housing and the rights and responsibilities of tenants in a simple and understandable manner. They used various cases to explain the rights, obligations, and considerations of tenants and landlords at different stages of the lease: beginning, during, and end. In general, tenants and landlords should be familiar with their rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancies Act. When disputes arise between tenants and landlords, NSCLC can provide free legal assistance and consultation services. The seniors gained valuable information from the workshop and applauded the speakers from NSCLC.
