Fitzroy Legal Service

Fitzroy Legal Service


Thousands of Victorians are unable to access the legal advice they desperately need. Without help, many people face court without legal representation, are unfairly treated by debt-collectors, lose their homes, or live in fear of a violent partner. 

This is where the Fitzroy Legal Service steps in.   The Fitzroy Legal Service is an amalgamation of the Darebin Community Legal Centre and Fitzroy Legal Service.   The amalgamated entity draws on the significant histories and legal assistance services provided by the Darebin Community Legal Centre (established in 1988) and the Fitzroy Legal Service (established in 1972).   We work towards a fairer and more just Victorian community, one in which the legal and broader social system supports equality and justice. 

As one of the oldest community legal centres in Australia we are able to offer our services and advice to thousands of people in need. Staffed by a core group of dedicated professionals and powered by the work of hundreds of passionate volunteers, our services are offered across the Cities of Darebin and Yarra, and the broader inner north of Melbourne.

We also publish The Law Handbook, a well respected, reliable source of legal information, which is used by legal professionals, community members, universities, schools, libraries and other organisations. 

As the number of community members experiencing disadvantage grows, particularly with the impact of COVID-19, our resources are becoming ever more stretched.   We urgently need your help. We must continue our work in empowering those in our community who need us the most. 

Your donation will help Fitzroy Legal Service stand up for the rights of everyone, especially our fellow community members experiencing disdvantage and vulnerability.
