You made Walk for Justice 2024 a huge success!

JusticeNet SA can now help more vulnerable South Australians from falling through the cracks in our legal system.





Thanks for walking for justice!

More than 500 walkers turned out on 21 May (National Pro Bono Day), helping make Walk for Justice 2024 our most successful event ever.

Not only did we surpass our fundraising goal of $150,000, but we also shattered THREE all-time fundraising records, reaching an incredible total of $160,077.

It truly means the world to us (Angie, Antonia, Cassandra, Hannah, Phoebe, Rebecca and Tracey) how you all showed up to support JusticeNet in 2024 - and had so much fun doing it! 

We rely on the generosity of our donors and fundraising events like Walk for Justice to continue our work in the community.

Why we walk

For every $1 we raise, approximately $10 of free legal work is delivered for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. 

Held on National Pro Bono Day, the walk celebrates the legal sector’s pro bono contribution to resolving thousands of legal matters for South Australians facing disadvantage.

Every year, Walk for Justice provides a whopping 27% of JusticeNet SA's funding so we can continue helping those who need it most.

Sonya's Story

Sonya* receives the disability support pension and lives in community housing. She was being bullied by her neighbours, who complained to SACAT in an attempt to have her evicted.

We helped Sonya negotiate with her landlord so that she could be transferred to a different property, away from her neighbours.

John's Story

Having lived in his public housing property for nearly 20 years, John* was referred to Homeless Legal when his landlord obtained an order to evict him. He didn't have anywhere else to go.

We helped John apply for an urgent review of the decision to evict him. At the hearing, orders were made about clean-up plans, financial counselling and other support but, critically, John was given the gift of time.
