Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) operates in one of the fastest growing and disadvantaged areas of Melbourne, and has a significant catchment including the Hume City Council, Moreland City Council and Mitchell Shire Council.

NCLC operates from a central office located in Broadmeadows, with outreach services to other service areas, including Wallan, Sunbury, Coburg, Glenroy, Fawkner and Craigieburn.

Our purpose is to ensure equal access to justice for all in Melbourne’s North West and we do this by the provision of legal services, community legal education and law reform aimed at the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Melbourne’s North West.

Utilising data to identify legal needs including the impacts of COVID on legal needs, the Policy and Evaluation Lead will identify systemic issues and apply evaluation frameworks across internal programs to ensure that our interventions are evidence-based and demonstrating intended outcomes.

The Policy and Evaluation Lead will contribute to policy development, funding needs, law reform, advocacy, research, monitoring and evaluation, submission writing and consultation to inform public policy and address systemic barriers that impact upon justice equity.
