Free legal advice, advocacy & education to people experiencing hardship or who are vulnerable to disadvantage in the Wide Bay region.

Wide Bay Advocacy Inc is an independent, non-profit organisation funded by grants made to it by the government and donations from the general public.

We provide free legal advice and advocacy to people experiencing hardship or who are vulnerable to disadvantage. Our services are directed to those who would not otherwise be able to access legal and advocacy services, either because they are not eligible for legal aid or because they cannot afford the services of a private lawyer.

We advocate for the protection and advancement of the needs, rights and freedoms of people who are vulnerable and disadvantaged in the Wide Bay region of Queensland.

We deliver free community legal education, workshops and information sessions on a number of general legal advice topics.
