About us

The Federation of Community Legal Centres (the Federation) is a fast-paced and dynamic organisation that seeks to create a fairer Victoria for all members of our community. We are the peak body for Victoria’s Community Legal Centres (CLCs), who are at the forefront of helping those facing economic, cultural or social disadvantage and whose life circumstances are severely affected by legal challenges.

For more than 40 years, CLCs have been part of a powerful movement for social change, reshaping how people access justice, creating stronger, more equitable laws, and more accountable government and democracy.

Our vision is for a community that is fair, inclusive and thriving, where every person belongs and can learn, grow, heal, participate and be heard.

We work with CLCs by enabling a strong collective voice for justice and equality; mobilizing and leading strategic, well-coordinated advocacy campaigns; leading and supporting ongoing learning and evaluation across the sector; and driving creativity and excellence in delivering legal services to communities.

Our workplace is flexible and rewarding for those who can see the bigger picture and who are comfortable working with multiple stakeholders across a range of social issues. We focus on delivering impact and outcomes, we celebrate collective success, and we encourage ongoing learning.

Our staff are driven, collaborative, solution-focused and adaptable. But most of all we share a strong commitment to social justice.


As the Federation goes through a period of positive growth, a key focus continues to be on ensuring the community legal sector is positioned to meet future opportunities and challenges, so we can carry on driving social justice for the Victorian community.
