Our members are community legal centres and organisations whose role is to provide disadvantaged people with free and independent information, advice, education and representation in the areas of social security and family assistance. Our members operate in all states and territories of Australia.
The NSSRN develops policy about social security and family assistance based on the casework experience of our members. We provide expert feedback to Government on new and proposed changes to welfare law and policy. We work to raise awareness of social security issues to inform the work of other organisations in advancing public welfare.
