Miller Harris Lawyers has been recognised for our contribution of pro bono services to the Cairns Homeless Person’s Legal Clinic

Miller Harris Lawyers has been recognised for our contribution of pro bono services to the Cairns Homeless Person’s Legal Clinic at the Homelessness Prevention Week Breakfast on Monday 1 August 2016.  Our lawyers, Lauren Doktor and Jason Roberts attend the clinic to provide legal support and advice to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  Lauren attended the breakfast and accepted a certificate of appreciation on behalf of Miller Harris Lawyers.  The certificate was presented by Justice Henry.

This year’s theme for Homelessness Prevention Week is ‘Homelessness Counts’ given the upcoming census.  At the breakfast, attendees found out that Australia ranks third in the highest rates of homelessness in developed countries and homelessness figures in Cairns are staggering, accounting for around 20% of Queensland’s total homeless.
