Register now

We're offering free Governance Health Checks to eligible not-for-profit organisations in the social services and health sectors and Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations delivering services in New South Wales, thanks to the NSW Government’s Social Sector Transformation Fund.

What are the benefits?

As a specialist legal service for not-for-profit organisations, we know how difficult it can be for organisations to create and maintain good governance frameworks. We also know that by embedding good governance practices, your organisation can focus on delivering more vital services to the community. 

By providing you with one-on-one support from one of our in-house lawyers, we will help your organisation and board:   

  • stay on top of legal and governance obligations    
  • manage risk and embed good governance practices    
  • improve skills, knowledge and confidence to identify and deal with legal issues, and    
  • avoid penalties

Is your organisation eligible?  

If you are a not-for-profit organisation or Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation delivering services in New South Wales, you may be eligible for free legal advice if you:   

  • are small-to-medium-sized with a revenue of under $5 million, and   
  • deliver services to people in the health and social services sector in NSW.
