What are community legal centres?



Community legal centres (CLCs) are independent non-government organisations that provide free legal services to people and communities, at time when that help is needed most - particularly to people facing economic hardship and discrimination.

Community legal centres provide a safety net to prevent people's legal problems from escalating. Without early legal advice, families can break down and health problems can escalate; people can be unnecessarily evicted and can lose their jobs.

There are almost 40 community legal centres in NSW. Below is a list, as well as links to their websites.
