Who we help

Bundaberg Street Law provides free legal advice and assistance to people who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness. This includes people who have no access or inadequate access to safe, secure, affordable and adequate housing that affords the right to live in security, peace and dignity.

Lawyers discuss client's situation of homelessness

For example, we assist people who are:

  • sleeping rough
  • living in their car
  • couch surfing
  • living in a refuge or other transitional accommodation
  • living in accommodation without legal rights
  • experiencing domestic violence or other threats of violence at their current accommodation
  • at risk of losing their current accommodation
People experiencing homelessness, and those at risk of homelessness, are among the Wide Bay region’s most socially and economically disadvantaged.
