We conduct pro bono work for organisations whose focus is on improving outcomes for those that need care and support in the community. Examples of the pro bono work we provide are below.
Banyule Community Health
Banyule Community Health is a not-for-profit community health service based in Melbourne that has been providing health care and welfare support services across multiple locations for over 40 years.
Banyule Community Health exists to improve the health and wellbeing of the community and pride itself on listening and responding to what the community needs.

Marnin Studio is a therapeutic healing space where Indigenous women come to create, learn and relax based in Fitzroy Crossing, Western Australia. The space is an incubator for developing products that reflect the artist’s deep knowledge of the local environment, culture and community.
The studio combines a strength-based, community led, therapeutic approach to empowerment. Through this social enterprise model, the women have the opportunity to reach financial stability with the sale of their products.
The POF Group is delighted to be supporting the studio through pro bono legal support.
