UNLOCKING OPPORTUNITIES FROM CHALLENGES
In a rapidly changing world, NEL helps people & their organisations face challenges as opportunities to unlock new possibilities in themselves and the communities they work in.
Far too often, those most impacted have the least agency to make change work for them. We recognise lived experience as an engine for change. We give those most impacted access to professional standards of legal expertise so that they are treated not as "beneficiaries" of justice, but as actors and agents for economic and social justice.
We use the law to to leverage organisational and community objectives that increase meaningful quality of life for all within the ecological boundaries of our planet.
