How we can help

There are thousands of legal issues not-for-profit organisations face every day. We’re here to help you navigate the process. If you’re part of a charity, not-for-profit or social enterprise, you may be eligible to receive free legal advice from our team of lawyers with specialised knowledge of the social sector, and our network of pro bono law firms.

Making a simple online application is the quickest and easiest way to find out if your organisation is eligible. It takes less than 5 minutes to apply.  

If your organisation isn’t eligible, take a look at our free online resources for the answer to your question.  We do not assist with internal conflicts, disputes or disagreements, and we have limited capacity to provide advice to new organisations. Start by looking at our free resources for dealing with conflict and starting a new organisation

Is your organisation eligible?

We prioritise giving legal advice to Australian not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises that:   

  • help marginalised or disadvantaged members of the community, or 
  • deliver services in rural regional and remote locations in Australia, and 
  • can't afford or have difficulty in accessing legal help.
