Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC)

Back to 'Directory'


Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) is a legal and policy centre promoting public interest issues. Public interest matters are those of broad public importance or concern that affect more than individuals or small groups.

PIAC undertakes strategic campaigns on access to justice (including for homeless people, and people with mental illness), consumer protection, and government accountability (including freedom of information, detention, energy and water, human rights, and indigenous justice).

PIAC's Homeless Persons' Legal Service provides free legal assistance to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

PIAC provides training and capacity building workshops, gives legal advice and conducts test case litigation, and undertakes research and public policy development and law reform.
