About the organisation


Fitzroy Legal Service (FLS) is a community-based organisation, dedicated to assisting the most marginalised members of the community with legal information, advice and representation, as well as advocating for law reform and conducting public interest litigation. 


We work towards a fairer and more just Victorian community, one in which the legal and broader social system supports equality and justice. Our services are offered across the Cities of Darebin and Yarra, and the inner north of Melbourne. 


FLS has built a reputation as a champion for justice, providing access and a voice to those often silenced, fighting the fights that others either can’t or won’t. In 2022, the services FLS provide are more important than ever before. 


While FLS is fortunate to have a reliable source of income through our strong relationships with the local, state and federal government and other key funders, there is a growing need for FLS to have access to a pool of non-committed funds. These funds are needed for critical services and will maintain FLS’ ability to deliver strong and independent advocacy.


This year FLS celebrates our 50th anniversary, making us one of the oldest community legal centres in Australia. As an iconic organic organisation with a strong supporter base, FLS is well placed to diversify revenue away from a high reliance on government with greater annual contributions from fundraising and philanthropy.
