About us


Community Legal Centres NSW (CLCNSW) is the peak representative body for almost 40 community legal centres in NSW.

Our team supports, represents and advocates for our members, and the legal assistance sector more broadly, with the aim of increasing access to justice for people in NSW.

Community Legal Centres NSW represents the views of community legal centres to the government and broader community, advocates on key law reform and policy issues, and supports community legal centres to improve the quality of services they deliver to the community.

Community Legal Centres NSW provides information and referrals to appropriate community legal centres or other organisations, however the office does not provide legal advice. If you are seeking legal advice, you can find out your options here.
