  Canterbury In Need Free Services Legal

Most people need legal help at some point in their lives. For many, the time they are most in need of that help is the time when they can least afford to pay for it.

Community Law Canterbury is a charity which is here to help. Our role is to provide legal assistance to those in our community who would otherwise struggle to access legal services. Our team of community lawyers, law students and volunteer lawyers work together to provide legal help by phone, appointments, outreach clinics and email services. The majority of our legal services are provided free of charge and we're committed to doing as much as we can to work with those who most need our help.

We receive some funding from the Ministry of Justice and through community funding but, as with many charities, the demand for our services means that there is always more need for assistance than there is funding available to provide it.

If we've helped you and you are now able to help us by making a donation, or if you're a community-minded organisation, business or individual who would like to support us in the work we do, we'd be very grateful for your contribution. We're a registered charity with donee status so any donation you make to us of over $5 will be eligible for a deduction on your income tax – even if you make that donation anonymously.

Thank you from all of the team at Community Law Canterbury – we're grateful for your support!
