The Services we provide The Centre provides legal advice and representation to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in the areas of Housing and Social Welfare Law.

Our services include:
1.Free Legal Advice Clinics; 2.Legal Representation; 3.Legal Resource to Homeless Organisations; 4.Policy Work; 5.Befriending. How we provide our service: We recognise that the legal system can be alienating and difficult and frustrating to negotiate. We aim to provide our clients with a service that is friendly and easy to access. As part of our service, volunteers are available to befriend clients in order to accompany them and provide them with emotional support as they go through the difficult process of trying to assert their rights. We also recognise that our clients may have a range of legal and other underlying problems which need to be addressed holistically. We are committed to helping clients identify these issues and to link in with other legal and support services as needed. Appropriate referrals are key to the service we provide.
Mercy Law Resource Centre operates out of a Christian ethos which recognises the dignity of each person. We seek to ensure that all people are treated with respect and compassion and are enabled to access their full potential as human beings. We are committed to the principles of human rights, social justice, equality and community participation...
