Louise’s story

For 9 months, Louise pleaded with her landlord to get urgent repairs carried out at her home in preparation for the birth of her baby.

“I felt like I was on the edge of having a heart attack. At times I wanted to give up, it was all just getting too hard”.

Sam’s story

Sam joined Anika to get his first community law experience by helping a pregnant mother get her unsafe home repaired just a week before the birth of the her baby.

“Seeing how our assistance empowered Louise during what she told me was one of the most stressful periods of her life, emphasised to me the unique and powerful social justice organisation Anika is poised to become”

Our Theory of Change

At the heart of Anika’s approach to measuring impact is a Theory of Change, a framework that breaks down the inputs and activities required to produce the outputs and a chain of outcomes that lead to a longer-term change. By following this Theory of Change, we can see how our actions move the needle on access to justice.
