Women's Legal Resource Centre
Women's Legal Services NSW provides free confidential legal advice and referrals to women in NSW, with a focus on family law, parenting issues, domestic violence, sexual assault and discrimination.
Women can obtain free legal advice over the phone or see a solicitor for face-to-face legal advice in Western Sydney.
Women's Legal Services NSW provides legal advice, information and assistance during Family Dispute Resolution to women through the FRC Partnership with Hawkesbury Neapean Community Legal Centre and the Family Relationship Centres at Blacktown and Penrith.
Women's Legal Services NSW also provides legal advice to women in several women's correctional centres through the LEAP for Women project.
Women's Legal Services NSW conduct community legal education sessions for women and community workers throughout NSW on issues relating to women and the law.
We also provide publications and resources on a range of topics of interest to women.
Women can make an appointment to meet a solicitor in person and discuss legal issues face-to-face.
The Outreach Services are located at four Women's Health Centres across Western Sydney. Each location was identified as an area of high need, where a face-to-face legal service would be useful. Once a fortnight, women can meet with a solicitor from Women's Legal Services and receive the following free services:
- Legal advice
- Legal Information
- Access to services such as interpreters
- Referrals to community organisations and service providers
