Law and legal services
Legal services – Includes advice and assistance in dispute resolution and court-related matters.
Example: a community legal centre provides free or low-cost legal advice to people in financial need who need to interact with the criminal justice system, either due to being arrested for a crime or being a victim of crime.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
