What our customers have to say about us


Brimbank City Council

In partnership with Not-for-Profit Law Training, Brimbank City Council has provided Community Governance Training on a range of legal topics to community groups in Brimbank since 2010. Participants have consistently provided positive feedback about the facilitators and the usefulness of the training material.”



FamilyCare has had a long association with Not-for-profit Law, accessing group training and commissioning training on specific topics for our staff. The training and materials are always easy to understand and apply and excellent value. Not-for-profit Law also responds directly to the needs of not-for-profit agencies and their clients – a skill that is not always easy to find.


Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful work Justice Connect does to support the wider community sector in providing information to leaders of volunteers regarding their legal obligations and to volunteers providing their time and talents to support their volunteer programs. Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre has engaged the service of Justice Connect – Not for Profit Law several times to provide a friendly informative workshop which our leaders of volunteers still appreciate and often mention in conversation.


Homelessness Sector Development - a partnership between Domestic Violence NSW, Yfoundations and Homelessness NSW

The Industry Partnership of the three NSW homelessness peak organisations commissioned Not for Profit Law Training (NFPLT) to provide training and resources to the homelessness sector in NSW, in preparation for a recontracting process for government funding.

NFPLT provided professional and thorough face-to-face and webinar training sessions and resources, customised to our particular focus. The content presented was informative and accessible. The two presenters for separate training sessions were both knowledgeable about the specific concerns facing the sector in anticipation of recontracting.

NFPLT was flexible about changing some scheduled face to face sessions to webinars at our request. The webinar format provided easy access for organisations across the State. Asking questions through the chat mechanism worked well and all questions asked were competently addressed.

Evaluations showed that most participants rated the training sessions as ‘Very good’ or ‘Excellent’. Participants indicated they would use the resources and knowledge gained to guide their recontracting process, improving existing agreements and improve compliance. We are very happy with the quality of service provided by NFPLT

Tennis Australia

The training provided by Not-for-Profit Law was easy follow and very informative for our clubs. Arranging the training was a stress-free process and was adapted to what suited our needs.


NCOSS have engaged Justice Connect to run training on areas such as governance and working together to build the capabilities of our members across the state. Throughout the process I have been impressed with the professionalism and expertise of Justice Connect staff, their willingness to understand the needs of our diverse membership and their ability to tailor the training accordingly. We have had excellent feedback from our members who have participated in the training offered and we look forward to continuing to partner with Justice Connect to deliver great outcomes.

Benalla Rural City Council

Benalla Rural City Council engaged the expertise of Not for Profit Law to deliver training aimed at local community groups involved with volunteering.  Information about the legal issues and obligations for managing volunteers is not always clear or straight forward.  The Not-For Profit Law presenter perfectly blended theory and ‘real world’ situations to deliver a three-hour workshop that was engaging and substantive.


Detailed workshop notes were helpful aids to learning. Feedback from the forty-five participants was universally positive with all aspects of the training session ranked as either very good or excellent.


Administrative and training staff at Not for Profit Law were supportive, flexible and efficient throughout planning and implementation of training. The workshop provided a valuable broad base of information with most participants, including the Benalla Rural City Council, more confident about the volunteering legal landscape and committed to reviewing their volunteer management processes.

Western Region Ethnic Community Council 

Using funds from a Community Grant from Department of Premier and Cabinet Western Region Ethnic Communities Council engaged Not-for-Profit Law Training to deliver governance training sessions to the leaders of groups from ethnic communities in the Western suburbs. There have been four sessions delivered this year to diverse communities and all have received very favourable feedback from the participants. The material was appropriate to the groups, the presentation accessible and the presenters very well informed and willing to answer all questions posed by the participants. We plan to run more seminars in the coming year for other ethnic community groups.
