Brotherhood of St Laurence
The Brotherhood of St Laurence is a not-for-profit organisation that works in communities across Australia to alleviate and prevent poverty. We aim to demonstrate how to defeat disadvantage through high quality services, research and policy development.
We work with children and families, people with disability, older people, job seekers, young people at risk of homelessness, migrants and refugees and other people facing hardship in their lives.
We have also established initiatives to tackle the challenge climate change and environmental sustainability present for disadvantaged people.
Our long experience in tackling poverty tells us that the best results are achieved when we join hands with others. Through partnerships with government and local community organisations we have a presence in cities and regions in every state and territory.
The Brotherhood believes that people facing disadvantage should be able to speak for themselves and contribute to framing solutions.Web Address: https://www.bsl.org.au/
