Public Interest Advocacy Centre


We are an independent, non-profit organisation that works with people and communities who are marginalised and facing disadvantage.

Our purpose

We build a fairer, stronger society by helping to change laws, policies and practices that cause injustice and inequality.

What we do

Our work combines:

  • legal advice and representation, specialising in test cases and strategic casework;
  • research, analysis and policy development; and
  • advocacy for systems change and public interest outcomes.

We actively seek to collaborate and partner in our work to maximise its impact.

Our current priorities: 

  • Equality and non-discrimination
  • First Nations Justice
  • Reducing Homelessness
  • Climate Change and Social Justice
  • A fairer NDIS
  • Truth-telling and government accountability
  • Fair use of police powers
  • Equal access to health care for asylum seekers
  • Sustainable, affordable energy and water for households
