Midlas is a not for profit community organisation, with Public Benevolent Institution, and Deductible Gift Recipient status (this means we are a registered charity and any donation to us over $2 is tax deductible). We are also accredited as a community legal centre with the National Association of Community Legal Centres.
Midlas offers holistic, wrap-around support for eligible clients, including disability advocacy, financial counselling and well-being, tenant advocacy, legal services and community engagement initiatives.
Midlas is governed by an elected Board of Management. The Chief Executive Officer, Gaelle Gouillou, oversees the day-to-day management of Midlas and works together with staff members, directors and volunteers to provide clients with a quality client centred service.
Midlas acknowledges that we are working on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, spiritual beliefs and relationship to land and waters. We extend this respect to other Aboriginal Language Groups and other First Nations.
Building Resilient Communities
We partner with individuals and organisations to promote independence, strength and wellbeing in our community through support, advocacy, and education.
Caring for People
This is at the heart of all we do, central to our drive and motivation.
We form partnerships with both individuals and with other organisations to maximise our reach and impact.
Supporting our Community
We go out into the community to inform, educate and raise awareness to enable people to address social issues before they reach crisis.
Midlas acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands in which we live and work, the Whadjuk Nyoongar people. We pay our respects to elders, past, present and emerging, acknowledging the past and walking hand in hand for a better future.
Midlas recognises, respects and welcomes diversity in all its forms, in the belief
that diversity is a source of strength and opportunity.
