Our COVID-19 response

We’re providing legal help to people and community organisations affected by the outbreak.

People need support now more than ever

How to get help

We’re continuing to deliver a wide range of legal services and programs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can apply for help from our services online, ask a lawyer for advice online or access our free self-help resources.

Updates on our service-delivery

We use an agile approach to the design and delivery of our legal services.

We’re constantly analysing our data and surveying what legal problems people are encountering, so that we can improve our services, resources and digital outreach.

Strengthening legal responses to disasters

Disasters and crises cause legal problems and increase vulnerability.

We’re calling for more support for scaled-up, digitally enabled, strategic and coordinated legal sector responses to meet legal need.
