Expert Advice Exchange

Please note the EAX is currently closed. 

The EAX connects eligible social sector organisations in NSW with pro bono expert advice from leading law firms, professional services firms, and financial institutions. Advice is available in over 20 areas, including:

  • legal issues, such as governance, intellectual property and regulatory matters
  • strategy, such as business planning, IT systems and communications
  • financial management and accounting
  • program development, implementation and evaluation.

EAX Update

To date, the EAX has facilitated 2,162 hours of pro-bono advice through 135 pairings of for-purpose organisations with 41 advisory firms. The EAX was established as a pilot program two years ago.

Introductory advice packages

As a result of strong demand for the EAX in 2015, the Office has worked with some advisory firms to support social sector organisations in ways other than one-on-one advice. Introductory advice packages on legal structure, governance and intellectual property are now available.
