Where to seek further assistance?

Suncoast Community Legal Service Inc has recently developed a series of short videos (web-isodes) to assist grandparents who are taking on the caring role for their grandchildren. The videos are designed to provide legal and support information before seeking legal assistance and advice from a community legal service, legal aid or private solicitor.

Working with our project collaborators, Community Solutions, the Office of Child Safety Office of the Child and Family Official Solicitor (OCFOS), Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and Uniting Care Communities, this web-isode series has been funded through the Legal Aid Queensland Community Legal Education Collaboration Fund.

Special thanks to Kirsty Mackie, Clem Van Der Weegan, Sunshine Coast Creatives and the legal team at Suncoast for their input and advice.
