Community legal centres advocate for a fairer society and justice system.

Community legal centres have a long and successful history of bringing about systemic change through policy, advocacy and law reform. Informed by the experiences of our communities, we work to effect changes that will increase access to justice, particularly those experiencing financial hardship, housing or job insecurity, disadvantage, trauma, or discrimination.
