Legal service delivery toolkit

Does your agency provide women with:

  • family law information
  • support for preparing for court and managing legal bullying
  • court and lawyer appointment accompaniments?

If so, would you like to increase your capacity to deliver these services?

Or, do you wish your agency had the capacity to offer such services?

Our Legal Service Delivery Toolkit can help.

Based on the Luke’s Place services offered in Durham Region, this Toolkit consists of procedural information, policies and resources for clients. Designed for women’s agencies in Ontario, it will strengthen and enhance your legal support services.

The Toolkit is $50 with all material available for download on www.LukesPlaceTraining.ca. It is free with many of our in-person trainings. Contact us to learn how to get access.
