Marrickville Legal Centre

About

We are Marrickville Legal Centre, a not-for-profit community legal centre based in Marrickville, working across New South Wales. We provide holistic support to people often overlooked by our legal system through free legal and related services while advocating for equal access to justice and protecting human rights. Our vision is to help people forward towards better and fairer outcomes, and to create access to justice for us all.

Program donations fund:

Marrickville Legal Centre (MLC) works with people who experience disadvantage or family violence, or are unable to access affordable family law services, to make workable arrangements after separation. Our Family Law Service experienced a remarkable 44% increase in clients since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of the individuals who approached us for family law help last year:

  • 77.36% experienced financial disadvantage
  • 20.63% live with disability
  • 32.66% experienced family violence

To compound matters, effective September 2021, the family court has restructured causing mass confusion for self-represented litigants. With your support, MLC can fund much-needed additional legal assistance for families in need including advice and legal education. All donations can make an impact.

Donate $125   | Send a family lawyer to represent vulnerable litigants at the family court
Donate $1000 | Provide safe pathways for people experiencing domestic and family violence
