Merseyside Law Centre Vacancy – Triage Coordinator

Established in the 1970’s as Merseyside Welfare Rights we became Merseyside Law Centre (MLC) in 2016. Merseyside Law Centre is a legal advice service that combats poverty and homeless and provides access to justice. We support people with housing, welfare benefits, debt and asylum support matters.

The Triage Coordinator post is an opportunity to play a key role in re-establishing and delivering essential legal advice and support in the community. Along with being the first point of contact for our clients you will have a key role training and supervising volunteers in administration and advice skills to support delivery of MLC advice services. We are looking for a highly motivated individual who is passionate about social welfare law and empowering people to learn new skills. You will be experienced in working in an advice setting and working with volunteers. You will have excellent interpersonal skills including the ability to relate to and work with a large variety of different people.

We are very excited to announce an upcoming collaboration with the LJMU Law Clinic. Under the supervision of an experienced solicitor LJMU trained students will be completing the application forms for Exceptional Case Funding for Legal Aid for suitable clients we will refer to them.

ECF is a special type of legal aid administered by the Legal Aid Agency (LAA), part of the Ministry of Justice. ECF is made available to people who would not usually qualify for funding, to help with their case, because the issues involved are generally excluded from legal aid. However, if without legal advice or representation an individual could suffer a breach of their human rights ECF must be made available. This is going to be such an important project as these types of applications are extremely time consuming and often there are not enough resources available to help complete them which in turn means that a client may not be able to gain access to the funding required to help their case move forward.

We look forward to working with the LJMU Law Clinic on this project and hope to help many people going forward.
