Our service provides legal advice, legal education and self-help resources for Australian charities, not-for-profits and social enterprises.
We give legal advice to eligible Australian charities, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises that help marginalised or disadvantaged members and can’t afford or have difficulty in accessing legal help.

NSW Government funding supporting our work with NSW community organisations will cease shortly, and this will impact our service delivery.
While we are dedicated to helping as many community organisations as we can, our ability to support NSW organisations with legal advice will be significantly reduced, and we will not be able to assist with urgent matters. You can still access our library of 300+ free self-help resources for community organisations, available at nfplaw.org.au/free-resources.
Our Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC) service will remain unaffected, so if you’re from one of the 120 LALCs across NSW, please continue to make an application for our targeted, practical, and culturally appropriate free legal help.
If you think your organisation may be eligible for legal advice from us, then please proceed to complete the application for assistance. On average this form will take 5 minutes of your time to complete.
You might find the answer to your question(s) in our self-help resources and we encourage you to look there first. You may also be interested in our easy-to-understand, webinars and customised legal training for not-for-profit organisations.
The personal and other information that you provide to us in this application is used to make an assessment about whether we are able to provide you with a service or refer you to another service provider.
We respect your privacy and confidential information, and have designed robust systems to protect your information.
Some of our services are delivered by our lawyers in our pro bono network. We may share your information with these lawyers for the purposes of finding you legal assistance.
We will not share your information with other service providers (other than lawyers that we are trying to recruit to provide you with legal assistance) without first seeking your consent.
Just because we aren’t able to answer your legal question, doesn’t mean that we can’t help. You might find the answer to your question(s) in our self-help resources. You may also be interested in our easy-to-understand, webinars and customised legal training for not-for-profit organisations.
