Our Annual Report highlights our impact and areas of focus across the 2021-22 financial year.
Over the past 12 months, the flow-on effects of the pandemic, including rapidly changing public health orders, coupled with extreme weather events and increasing social and economic disadvantage, were among the many factors contributing to urgent legal problems among the communities we serve.
Housing and homelessness, unstable employment, increasing levels of fines debt and the financial dimension of domestic and family violence are just some of the core issues we assisted with throughout the year, through legal assistance services as well as policy and advocacy work.
We continue to strengthen partnerships with pro bono firms, government, and industry bodies, working in collaboration with other community organisations, donors and funders, to advocate for a fair and just society. Our dedicated volunteer team have continued to support our work enthusiastically throughout these tumultuous times. We remain committed to working together to increase access to justice.
