Our People

Welfare Rights Centre opened its doors in 1983 as part of a community legal centre movement responding to the scarcity of affordable legal assistance services available to vulnerable people in the community. Originally co-located with Redfern Legal Centre, the Centre moved to its own premises in 1985, going from strength to strength as the lead service agency in NSW for social security law and policy.

We owe an enormous debt to all those who’ve been part of Welfare Rights Centre over almost 40 years - staff, board, volunteers, and our supporters.
