COMMUNITY LEGAL CENTRES
Community Legal Centres (CLCs) are community based and controlled organisations providing free or low-cost services to their communities.
Some CLCs provide general community legal services for people living in a geographic area, either in the metropolitan area or in regional and remote areas. Other CLCs provide specialist services for certain clients or in a certain interest area (eg mental health, tenancy, women, young people, refugee status, employment law and consumer issues). Some 'generalist' CLCs also provide some specialist services. See the information in our directory for what services you can access from each Centre.
CLC services include information and advice; casework and minor assistance; representation and advocacy; community legal education; policy and law reform. Each CLC may offer different services, depending on the needs of the community.
There are currently 28 community based, community managed legal centres throughout metropolitan, regional and remote Western Australia.
