WHO WE ARE

The Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation exists to promote and protect the rights of women and children in Australia.

To ensure maximum impact, the Foundation brings together our entire community offering and is comprised of three streams – pro bono legal services, volunteering and charitable contributions.

We consider all requests for pro bono legal services, professional and general volunteering, community project assistance and in-kind support. Our Foundation does not consider applications for grants or general philanthropic donations.

OUR STRATEGY (2014 – 2017)

INFORMATION GATHERING
AND SHARING

We research legal issues affecting women and children in Australia and abroad to understand key problems more fully and contribute to a framework for coordination and change. We have also joined a community of partners (both internally and externally), through a collaborative platform, to gather and share information.

ALIGNMENT AND PARTNERSHIPS

We align our resources to lead or support projects underpinned by a commitment to promote and protect the rights of women and children and in turn, we have established partnerships and relationships with key NGOs, charities, clearinghouses and community legal centres around the globe. Where possible, we encourage our commercial clients to participate in our programs and projects.

SERVICES AND SUPPORT

We provide a wide range of legal services to
individuals and organisations, including legal advice, legal analysis and research, policy advice, secondments, legal clinics, advocacy, strategic litigation, law reform and capacity workshops. We also provide a range of non-legal support including professional and community volunteering, in-kind support, structured mentoring, internships, corporate donations, fundraising, sponsorships, conference support, awareness raising and thought leadership.

STRONG PARTNERSHIPS

We aim to use our resources in an interconnected and holistic way to ensure maximum impact for our community partners. Put another way, we aim to do more for fewer clients.
