TGB links up with Ladder


Tindall Gask Bentley Lawyers is providing pro bono legal services for homeless youth in South Australia, through the Ladder organisation.

Ladder is working to break the cycle of youth homelessness by providing accommodation, support and mentoring.

The organisation has a facility at Vincent Street in Port Adelaide, which can house 23 young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

TGB held a seminar for the residents at the building on Thursday (10/5/12) discussing the topics Police and your rights, the Courts system, legal advice and representation and victims rights. 

“It was a great opportunity to head down to the Ladder facility and talk with the young people who are involved in the program and it was really well received,” TGB Associate Brianna Tapscott said.

“We believe it is extremely important for everyone to know their legal rights and responsibilities in the community, and we look forward to continuing this relationship with Ladder.”

Ms Tapscott, along with Toni Emanuele, Andrew Johnston and Catriona Morgan, will continue to offer pro bono seminars and legal advice at the facility for residents.

Ladder was established in 2007 by a group of former AFL players to leverage the influence of the AFL industry, its players and networks to challenge the issue of youth homelessness.
