About the organisation
The Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) formed in early 2016 following an amalgamation of the former Broadmeadows Community Legal Service and Moreland Community Legal Centre. The NCLC operates in one of the fastest growing and disadvantaged areas of Melbourne, and has a significant catchment including the Hume City Council, Moreland City Council and Mitchell Shire Council. The NCLC operates from a central office located in Broadmeadows, with outreach services to other service areas, including Wallan, Sunbury, Coburg, Glenroy, Fawkner and Craigieburn.
Our purpose is to ensure equal access to justice for all in Melbourne’s North West and we do this by the provision of legal services, community legal education and law reform aimed at those who experience systemic injustice in Melbourne’s North West. NCLC gives priority to victims/survivors of Family Violence, Refugees and newly arrived communities, people who have a diagnosed mental illness and young people.
