Community legal centres primarily target their services for people who are ineligible for legal aid and who are unable to afford the services of a private lawyer. Some centres are set up to meet the needs of specific people - such as young people, women, or people experiencing homelessness.

Most centres have eligibility requirements so you will need to check these when contacting the centre.

A community legal centre will not be able to assist you if it is already providing services to another party in a dispute. This is called a conflict of interest. In order to determine if there is a conflict of interest you may be asked a series of questions. If there is a conflict of interest, we suggest you contact another centre, or another legal provider.
