Australia’s 600,000 charities and not-for-profits, from international aid groups right down to the local tennis club, have recently received a major boost, as Justice Connect’s Not-for-profit Law service launched the acclaimed Information Hub for a national audience.

The Not-for-profit Law Information Hub is a free, online one-stop shop answering charities’ legal questions from how to start-up to how to wind-up, and has been operating in Victoria and NSW for eighteen months, already helping over 100,000 people with their legal questions.

With generous assistance from philanthropy and law firms around Australia, the new national Hub now has 210 practical and detailed resources covering laws for charities and not-for-profits in every state and territory.
