Community

We understand that the community sector is part of the fabric of Australian society and fundamental to the life and wellbeing of Australians.

Meridian works closely with individuals and organisations across the care, education, not-for-profit, charity and association sectors. We appreciate the nuances of dealing with faith-based and community organisations, as well as the challenges affecting the not-for-profit sector. Our team is familiar with the regulatory and support structures for those in need of care and supervision including the aged, the disabled, children, students, and those who are mentally or physically ill, or incapacitated.

We can assist with commercial, property, governance and regulatory advice, workplace relations and safety, bullying, discrimination and abuse claims, injury, liability, professional indemnity and D&O insurance claims and policy advice, civil and commercial litigation and coronial enquiries. Our extensive experience within the community space enables us to deliver efficient and astute advice at reasonable rates.
