Our Purpose

We exist so rights are known and acted upon, and communities are fairer.

Our Role

  • We promote individual rights and access to justice.

  • We prevent or reduce socio-legal problems by building awareness.

  • We create and support solutions that give the greatest opportunity for change.

Our Princples

  • Holistic self-determination: We focus on the whole person and the whole of a problem as a way of finding more healthy and sustainable solutions to legal issues, and work
    with them to see a just outcome.

  • Safe and right-based: We recognise human rights and freedoms as legally enforceable and give priority to people in the most marginalised or vulnerable situations who face the biggest barriers to realising their rights.

  • Systemic: We aim to create wider positive effects on a group or system as a whole, arising from our work with individuals and communities.
