Aboriginal legal access program


The Community Legal Centres NSW Aboriginal Legal Access Program makes a significant contribution to access to justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in NSW by:

  • Embedding cultural safety into the framework of community legal centres;
  • Improving the numbers of Aboriginal staff in the legal sector, and thereby strengthening community connections to civil and early intervention legal services;
  • Role-modeling employment pathways and culturally appropriate settings for legal education;
  • Delivering legal information and advice; and
  • Developing and supporting relationships between community legal centres and local Aboriginal community controlled organisations and groups, including developing MOUs with the ALS and with Tranby College.

Do you need free legal help? Want to talk with a community organisation who is not part of government? Community legal centres are community-embedded organisations that can help with legal problems. If you are an Aboriginal person in NSW looking for legal help, please see our Find legal help - for Aboriginal people page for further information.
