Human Rights Law Centre

The Human Rights Law Centre based in Melbourne uses strategic legal action, policy solutions and advocacy to support people and communities to eliminate inequality and injustice and build a fairer, more compassionate Australia. Our work includes supporting whistleblowers, who are crucial to ensuring accountability for government and corporate wrongdoing, including human rights abuses.

The HLRC Whistleblowing Project helps whistleblowers safely reveal wrongdoing under the protection of law, ensure the wrongdoing they disclose is dealt with promptly and fairly, protect themselves against reprisals; and, where they do suffer retaliation, vindicate their rights. The Project was established in 2023, following a history of policy and advocacy work protecting and empowering whistleblowers in Australia.
