Free Legal and Migration Services
For over 16 years, we have been the only specialist centre providing free legal and migration services to people who have experienced or are at risk of modern slavery in Australia.
Our clients contact us directly through our national advice hotline or My Blue Sky, our dedicated forced marriage website. They are also referred to us by the Australian Federal Police, Australian Red Cross, and other community support organisations.
We have assisted hundreds of clients across every state and territory in Australia, who have been trafficked, enslaved or forced to marry in Australia.
Through our holistic, person-centred approach, we help our clients navigate the legal process including providing advice and assistance on immigration, citizenship, employment law, family law, criminal law and victims’ compensation.
Our work enables survivors of modern slavery build positive futures for themselves and their families.
If you have been trafficked or face extreme labour exploitation or you are worried about someone in this situation call us for confidential advice.
If you suspect someone is experiencing modern slavery in Australia, contact us on (02) 9514 8115. We can arrange an interpreter if you need one.
In emergencies, if you are in immediate danger or there is a threat of violence, call Triple 0 (000).
To report a possible crime of exploitation call the Australian Federal Police on 131 237 (131 AFP).
Forced Marriage –
My Blue Sky
My Blue Sky is Australia’s first website dedicated to forced marriage prevention, information and legal advice. The website is available in 15 languages and has specialised pages for young children, teenagers, educators and medical practitioners.
The website offers vulnerable people access to information about marriage in Australia, and, direct access to legal advice and support through text message, email or a secure online locker room.
This platform has allowed us to reach, engage and provide legal advice and assistance to many children and young people at-risk of, or who have experienced, forced marriages. This includes helping Australian citizens and residents who have been taken overseas for a forced marriage to return home.
