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.

NCLC employs over 24 staff including 11 lawyers to provide advice, casework, community legal education, community development and administrative support to priority clients, including victims of family violence, refugees and the newly arrived, people diagnosed with a mental illness, young people aged 25 and under and other people facing systemic barriers. Our main office is in Broadmeadows and we will be opening a second office in Wallan. We assist clients at a range of outreach locations as well as providing telephone and face to face appointments.
