SURVEY: How to support community workers?

June 7, 2017

Help the Foundation to better understand how to support community workers to help people with legal problems

What Do You Think? written on a chalk board


As part of our commitment to better understand the impact of our funding, The Law Foundation of Ontario has commissioned research to gain a deeper understanding of frontline community workers or “trusted intermediaries” and how they help clients with legal problems.

Please share your thoughts

An independent team of researchers is conducting a brief survey on our behalf to hear from a range of individuals and organizations about their perspectives and ideas about the role of frontline community workers in helping people with their legal problems. We want to understand more about the value of this work, the form it takes, and the kinds of training and tools that best support the “trusted intermediary” role.

We would like to hear from frontline workers in community organizations and anyone else with an interest in this topic. Participation is voluntary and confidential.

The survey and a Backgrounder are available online now and should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Please circulate it within your networks and share it with anyone else you think might be interested. The survey closes July 7, 2017.
