We Can Help - Multi-access legal assistance video
The Auslan video produced by the Legal Services Commission outlines the legal support services offered by the Commission along with its' face-to-face; telephone and online resources.
The video is a legal assistance video for all South Australians including those with a disability – such as people with low or no hearing, Deaf, low or no vision or conditions leading to cognitive impairment and is presented by Access Services Manager, Christopher Boundy. The Auslan translation was provided by Sarah Lewis.
The information is delivered verbally, in Auslan and with subtitles. Notably, the film caters to people with cognitive impairment, such as a brain injury, who have difficulty processing large amounts of visual information. The film is shot simply in black-and-white, edited at a very measured pace, and presents information clearly with minimal distractions.

- the free Legal Helpline on 1300 366 424 to speak with a legal advisor from the Commission (Monday to Friday)
- the LegalChat direct messaging service available Monday to Friday 9 - 4:30pm
