Legal services

We believe that no one should be without a trusted legal advisor in their time of need. That’s why Salvos Legal Humanitarian provides free legal advice to people who are unable to access legal assistance.

How to access free advice

You can access free legal advice by visiting one of our Advice Bureaus in New South Wales or Queensland.

We provide one-off advice, limited assistance or full representation, subject to our Means and Merits test, in circumstances where disadvantaged individuals are facing social injustice.

People in Queensland who are seeking asylum can also access free legal services through our Asylum Seeker Clinic.

Please select your state to see details for advice bureaus in your area. Please note that this service is only offered in NSW and Queensland.
