Like most free legal advice services, ALOS runs on a very tight budget.
The Law School pays for practicing solicitors to supervise students, and provides some of our office needs. Westcare provide us with free office space, computers, and other facilities. Without this support from the Adelaide Law School and Westcare, we could not function.

We are always in need of basic office supplies and equipment to ensure our service can operate effectively on a daily basis.
The effective operation of our office is vital to facilitating access to justice. ALOS is dedicated to enabling disadvantaged or vulnerable individuals to have access to legal services, information and advice. The ability to obtain legal services is a basic human right, and ALOS aims to achieve equality amongst the community by providing free services to anyone in need. Donations of office supplies and equipment help improve the efficiency of our office. As a result, the more efficient our office, the better we are able to deliver our services to those in need.
Law firms, other businesses, or any individual can help us by donating used items that they no longer need when updating their own office equipment.
We welcome donations of equipment and supplies of any kind, however in particular, we currently need the following:
- Plain white envelopes
- 65c postage stamps
- White and colour paper
- Stapler and staples
- Lockable, four-drawer filing cabinets
- Working laptops or netbook computers
We also welcome monetary donations, to allow us to purchase these items ourselves.
If you would like to donate any of these items to ALOS, or would like to express your interest in contributing to our fundraising campaign, please contact us on (08) 8118 5200. Alternatively, please see our Contact Us page.
We are happy to arrange for collection of any office supplies or items from you.
All firms, businesses, or individuals who make a donation of any kind, large or small, are presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from ALOS. ALOS also acknowledges any contribution made by thanking all donors on our website.
ALOS wishes to thank the following businesses that have generously donated office supplies and equipment:
