Redfern Legal Centre (RLC) is a not-for-profit community legal centre dedicated to increasing access to justice and advancing human rights. Founded in 1977, RLC have been working for people experiencing disadvantage for over 45 years focusing on human rights, social justice, discrimination, domestic abuse, international students and police and government accountability.
Morpht has a commitment to giving back to the community and was approached by design agency partner Folk, to assist in the rebuilding of the RLC website. This pro-bono project was a great opportunity for Morpht to support local legal aid and to help people experiencing disadvantage.
Folk worked on redesigning the branding and front-end components while Morpht undertook the work on the content mapping, migration and rebuild of the site from Drupal 7 into Drupal 9.

With a lot of services shifting online during the COVID-19 pandemic, RLC saw the need to improve their digital services and user experience for their clients seeking legal aid. Services that were usually face-to-face needed to shift online. With a higher percentage of users on mobile, as well as needing to consider that 1 in 10 users had a disability of some kind. Improvements were needed for findability of information, accessibility and online intake of clients.
Morpht and Folk were able to provide RLC with a new website on Drupal 9, which opened their digital services to disadvantaged people within the community. Improved findability of content, clear navigation and structure, use of online forms for client intake and accessibility enhancements means RLC’s services are easily accessible by everyone in need of legal aid.
Morpht were such a pleasure to work with and created an amazing, award-winning website for us that all of our staff and clients absolutely love. It looks modern, it's easy to navigate and it represents our brand perfectly. We couldn't recommend them more highly.
