About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Northern Community Legal Centre
The Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) is a not-for-profit community legal centre which operates in one of the fastest growing areas of Melbourne, and has a significant catchment including the Moreland, Hume and Mitchell Shire Local Government Areas. The NCLC operates from a central office located in Broadmeadows with outreach clinics to other service areas.

NCLC seeks to make our services accessible to all the community by providing legal advice, education and referrals. However, NCLC recognises that there are members of our community who suffer serious disadvantage. To this end NCLC has prioritized the following groups, which have the least resources and ability to access legal assistance; newly arrived and refugees; survivors/victims of family violence, young people, people with mental health issues, and elderly people suffering abuse and have aligned our service delivery accordingly.
