About this project
The Homeless Persons’ Legal Service (HPLS) addresses the legal needs of homeless people and plays an active role in reducing homelessness.
With the support of pro bono lawyers from some of Australia’s leading law firms, we run free legal clinics for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our in-house lawyers also provide legal representation in criminal and civil law matters.
We work closely with government and service providers on issues relating to homelessness, and develop policy through our consumer advisory committee, StreetCare.
