Canberra Community Law

Canberra Community Law is an independent community organisation. We have been part of the Canberra community for almost 35 years. We work at the grassroots level to ensure that people in the ACT who face financial and other barriers can get specialist legal assistance on a wide range of legal issues including tenancy, Centrelink, race or disability discrimination, debts, and proof of ID issues. We also provide specialist support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and people facing homelessness. Our legal team collaborates with a dedicated social worker to offer intensive support to clients including women experiencing family and domestic violence and people with disability.

We also operate an evening legal assistance service in most areas of law and in 2020 we launched a COVID-19 legal clinic and the Canberra COVID-19 Legal Help website in response to the increased demand for COVID-19 related legal assistance.
Our targeted support helps people to obtain housing, claim Centrelink payments, get their debts waived, resolve their employment issues and much more. Your donations to this appeal will make a huge difference to our ability to continue to assist people doing it tough with a limited income and multiple barriers to accessing justice.

On March 9, join us in raising our hands for Canberra!
