We believe access to justice should be a right for all Western Australians.

    Community legal centres are important as they help people who cannot afford to access the justice system. 

    Centres provide free or low-cost legal help in our community in areas such as:

    • family and domestic violence,
    • parenting arrangements and child protection,
    • employment law, wage theft and job security,
    • housing insecurity arising from tenancy problems and homelessness,
    • financial problems like fines and debts, welfare payments and consumer complaints; and
    • mental health issues.

    We believe people with a legal problem should be able to get the legal help they need; at the time they need it most. 

    Community legal centres seek to provide early legal assistance to prevent legal problems escalating.

    Please note, real names and images have not been used to respect the confidentiality of clients.
