Good360 is a not-for-profit that facilitates large donations of brand new unsold goods from businesses and distributes them for free to charities and not-for-profits to help Australians in need. In addition to providing much needed support to CLCs, the program has redirected large amounts of high quality excess stock from going to landfill. We ran this story following its launch in 2017.
The project was undertaken by the National Association of Community Legal Centres in partnership with the Australian Legal Sector Alliance. Last year, 11 law firms participated in a responsible business initiative which involved sponsoring a pilot group of Community Legal Centres (CLCs) to access the Good360 platform.
Now that the pilot period has expired, CLCs that wish to continue ordering goods from Good360 are seeking sponsorship from corporate partners to maintain their memberships. Most of the CLCs have already been sponsored by law firms that participated in the pilot, however there are a few remaining and a few more that would like to join if they can find a sponsor.
These CLCs are still seeking sponsorship for Good360 membership:
- Katherine Women’s Information and Legal Service (NT)
- Central Highlands Community Legal Centre (VIC)
- JusticeNet (SA)
- Goldfields Community Legal Centre (WA)
- Gold Coast Community Legal Centre & Advice Bureau (QLD)
- Environmental Defenders Office (SA)
- Environmental Defenders Office (TAS)
- NorthWest Community Legal Centre Inc (TAS)
If your firm or company can help, please contact Natasha Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org or Gabriela Christian-Hare email@example.com.
$500 per CLC ($250 membership fee + $250 store credit to fund shipping and handling)
Value for money
During the 12-month pilot, the nominated CLCs received goods to the value of 39 times the cost of their sponsorships.
