Peninsula Community Legal Centre is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that has been providing free legal services to Melbourne’s south-eastern communities for 35 years.
The Centre helps people use the law to protect and advance their rights, offering free advice on most legal issues. Ongoing assistance is targeted to assist clients who are experiencing disadvantage. In addition to its general services, the Centre operates Family Law, Child Support, Intervention Order, Tenant and Consumer Advocacy Programs.
Peninsula Community Legal Centre utilises the skills and work of volunteers to extend and enhance its operations and service delivery.
Community legal education, special projects and participation in law reform are also important aspects of the Centre’s work.
