SEMZ Community Partners

 
At SEMZ we have forged relationships with our chosen community partners to give back to our community in a meaningful way.

Our team benefits from taking an active role in these partnerships. We embrace staff-led initiatives for giving back, and encourage new ideas and opportunities for SEMZ to make a difference.

Human Rights Law Centre

The Human Rights Law Centre uses strategic legal action, policy solutions and advocacy to support people and communities to eliminate inequality and injustice and build a fairer, more compassionate Australia.

HRLC vision is an  Australia where everyone is free to lead a decent, dignified life; where our laws, policies and institutions promote fairness and equality; and where people and communities have the power to address inequality and injustice, and ensure that governments always act in the public interest.

SEMZ have partnered with HRLC to provide financial assistance and support.
