Justice Connect helps thousands of people each year receive access to justice. These are their stories.

Justice Connect works to improve access to justice for the most vulnerable people in our community, including people experiencing homelessness, asylum seekers and newly-arrived migrants and seniors. We also provide legal help to not-for-profit organisations so that they can focus on their important work in the community.
