Where else to get help

 

Generalist Legal Centres

Generalist legal centres like ECLC provide advice and casework services in many areas of law and to people who live, work or study in a specific catchment area.

For residents of other local government areas, please contact your nearest Community Legal Centre.

 

Specialist Legal Centres

Specialist legal centres provide state-wide advice in specific areas of law, including consumer complaints, domestic violence, environment and planning, employment, tenancy and immigration. There are also legal services catering for Indigenous people, families, students, refugees, women and young people.

A list of Victorian specialist legal centres can be found at the Federation of Community Legal Centres website.
