A commitment to legal support for homeless people

  • Adelaide: Magdalene Centre
  • Brisbane: CafĂ© One (Mission Australia)
  • Melbourne: Flagstaff Crisis Accommodation (Salvation Army)
  • Melbourne: Ozanam House (St Vincent de Paul)
  • Sydney: Women's & Girls' Emergency Centre.

We also support Street Law ACT in Canberra, Street Law Centre WA in Perth. In New Zealand, we work with YouthLaw.
