About Midlas

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 a range of free services for our eligible clients, including disability advocacy, financial counselling, tenancy advocacy, legal service, emergency relief and an information and referral service.

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 in Whadjuk country and pay respect to Elders and Noongar people, past and present.
