General Donations

Redfern Legal Centre means many things to many people. For some RLC is where they started their legal careers. For others RLC’s advice and support saved them from an abusive situation or homelessness. No matter what RLC means to you, one thing holds true, RLC’s work cannot be done without a team! From the volunteers, alumni, pro bono partners and donors, every member of the team plays an integral part in ensuring RLC continues its 40-year legacy of being a trusted, reliable, innovative provider of legal advice to disadvantaged communities.
In a time of decreased government funding, your donation will ensure the organisation continues to provide needed legal services for thousands in need each year. By contributing to RLC, you are protecting its legacy and sustaining its future.
