You can also contact us anytime to ask for advice via our website enquiries page.


Please note We are experiencing very high demand and are trying to speak to people as quickly as possible. We're prioritising urgent matters, but unfortunately some people are having to wait a number of weeks to speak with a solicitor. In other cases we are forwarding written information to help people pursue their Centrelink matter.


We apologise for any frustration or distress these delays may cause. We are seeking additional funding but also invite you to contact your local Federal Member of Parliament to ask them to provide us with the additional funding we need to run our advice service.
