Join-us.jpg
Long term

Bayside Community Information and Support Service (BayCISS) is a not for profit organisation based in the Bayside and Kingston area providing support, advocacy, referral and information including counselling and case work, to vulnerable and low-income community members.  The Castlefield location operates as a Community Centre providing occasional child care and community programs dependent on need.

We aim to provide services and programs designed for assistance, participation, development, learning and enjoyment. 

We are:

  • Impartial – we are non-judgemental, flexible and supportive
  • Accessible – we are available for people to offer support
  • Respectful – we are respectful and listen to others
  • Collaborative – we work with and develop local partnerships

We are currently looking for a qualified solicitor to volunteer as part of our Legal Advice Program team which offers free legal advice to members of our community.  The position is rostered according to availability on a rotating basis with each solicitor contributing one hour every second month.

Finding appropriate and meaningful legal advice can be daunting.  Our legal advice program provides an initial opportunity for community members to speak to a qualified professional to consider options, provide information and advice in regard to legal matters and refer them to a legal service or local practitioner who can help.  The program is designed to support those experiencing hardship to find workable and realistic solutions to their situations.

If this opportunity sounds like something you may be interested in or if you would like more information, including a position description, please contact the Manager on 9555 9910 or by email on manager@bayciss.org.au today!
