Our clients

During 2018–19 we helped 100,061 unique clients, including those seen by a private practitioner duty lawyer. We have seen steady increases in the level of disadvantage experienced by our clients. Many experience language, literacy or cultural barriers, disability or other health issues, or social and geographic isolation.
