Northern Community Legal Centre

The Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) is a dynamic not-for-profit community legal centre which operates in one of the fastest growing areas of Melbourne, and has a significant catchment including the Merri-bek, Hume and Mitchell Shire Local Government Areas. The NCLC operates from a central office located in Broadmeadows with outreach clinics to other service areas. NCLC ensures services accessible to all the community by providing legal advice, education and referrals. However, NCLC recognises that there are members of our community who suffer serious disadvantage and has prioritised marginalised people who have the least resources and ability to access legal assistance including: newly arrived and refugees, survivors/victims of family violence, young people, people with mental health issues, and have aligned our service delivery accordingly. NCLC employs 24 staff including 11 lawyers to provide advice, casework, community legal education, community development and administrative support to priority clients.
