- Digital product development and digital infrastructure expertise, in particular in small-medium organisational contexts

About the organisation
Justice Connect is a dynamic Australian charity that works in the face of huge unmet legal needs to design and deliver high-impact interventions that increase access to legal support and achieve social justice. We believe in a fair and just world, where people and communities are supported to engage with and fully participate in our legal and social system and to avoid the negative impacts on their wellbeing or organisational health.
To achieve our purpose we collaborate with the right people and organisations — pro bono law firms, healthcare services, homelessness groups and more — to get the right help to the right people at the right time. We embrace technology, innovation, and new ways of working.
In 2020, Australian communities have dealt with bushfire crises and now grapple with unprecedented consequences flowing from COVID-19. We know that these events are causing and will continue to drive increases in legal need while our legal system and legal services ecosystem is already overwhelmed. In response to the huge challenges faced by our community, our strategy commits us to scaling our services with a focus on digital initiatives, amplifying our work through strategic engagement and being an effective and financially sustainable organisation.
Justice Connect is a company limited by guarantee, a registered charity, and is endorsed as a public benevolent institution with DGR status, with offices in Victoria and New South Wales.
