We are an independent organisation operating in the community interest. The centre operates through a Management Committee which is representative of the community.

We are a registered Charitable Incorporated organisation providing a core service of advice, casework and representation without charging you the client for those services. We also undertake social policy work which includes campaigning on issues that affect the community.

Our emphasis is on providing actual representation which very few local organisations provide.

Public legal education

As a centre we also provide public legal education, working with or for target groups to make them aware of their rights, or how they can be helped to improve their lives.We also undertake social policy and law reform activity to combat deprivation, discrimination, as well as social, legal and administrative injustice. We also undertake advocacy on behalf of our clients and campaign for social change in the interests of our clients.
