We’re providing legal help to people and community organisations affected by the outbreak.
People need support now more than ever
When public health crises occur, existing legal problems do not go away, and new legal needs emerge. All of our programs and services continue to run. Our community-based services are moving to a phone and video model to reduce exposure for staff, volunteer lawyers and clients.
We’re ramping up our support for organisations affected by the pandemic. Our Not-for-profit Law team launched a special response supporting not-for-profits grappling with complex issues as they face remote working, service closures, employment law and safety concerns.
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.
The law can have a devastating impact on someone’s financial stability, family relationships, housing and health. The COVID-19 pandemic is adding more pressure on people who are already doing it tough.
With your help, we can support people facing unfair dismissal, older people facing abuse, and those who are struggling to pay rent or experiencing homelessness.
Your contribution will make sure our lawyers and social workers can get the right help to people as quickly as possible.
