“Free Legal Help for Gold Coasters in Need”

Coronavirus COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our Centre will be removing its “Walk-In” service and replacing it with a “Telephone Advice by Appointment” service. This temporary measure is designed to protect our clients, staff and volunteers.

To book an appointment, please click below and fill out the appointment request form or phone 0423 466 286.

Should you be unable to reach one of our volunteers upon calling, please leave your details and a brief summary of your legal matter and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We are a volunteer-powered community legal centre and appreciate your understanding whilst these temporary measures are in place.
