The Shopfront Youth Legal Centre is a free legal service for homeless and disadvantaged young people aged 25 and under. The Shopfront is a joint project of Mission Australia, the Salvation Army and the law firm Herbert Smith Freehills. We are based in inner-city Sydney (356 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst) but can help people who live outside this area.
