Fund Our Work
The effects of adverse Centrelink decisions can be devastating but sometimes there is a remedy!

We provide free advice and support to people who are struggling to access their social security entitlements or challenge unfair debts. For people who are particularly vulnerable, we offer substantial casework support.

Unfortunately, government funding covers only a portion of our work so we rely on the generosity of others to keep our services running.

Would you like to help support or work and extend our services?


Although we support almost 5000 individuals and community workers across NSW every year, demand for our services far exceeds our capacity. We need your support so we don’t have to keep turning people away.

Please consider giving a one-off or monthly donation of any amount. We can guarantee that 100% of funds donated will go directly to our casework service. To make a donation, click here.


Leaving Welfare Rights Centre a gift in your Will can make a real difference, providing a lasting legacy of your values and wishes.

There are a number of ways you can leave a gift in your Will. You can find some suggested wording here if you’re making or updating a Will, but we also recommend speaking with a solicitor to ensure your Will is valid and intentions clearly stated. We also suggest speaking with family to ensure your wishes are known.

If you wish to discuss the possibility of making a bequest or you’d like to ensure your bequest goes to a specific area of our work, please contact our Chief Executive Officer, Katherine Boyle at [email protected] or on (02) 9211 5389.

Please also let us know if you have taken the legal steps to include a gift to Welfare Rights Centre in your Will to give us the opportunity to thank you. All information will be held in strict confidence if you wish.
