About Us


Community Legal Centres NSW is the peak representative body for 41 community legal centres in NSW. Community legal centres are independent non-government organisations that provide free legal services to people and communities at times when that help is needed most, and particularly to people facing economic hardship and discrimination.

Our small team based in Surry Hills 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.

Need free legal help?

Community legal centres help thousands of people every single day with a whole range of issues – housing, fines, family matters, domestic and family violence, and more.

Call Law Access on 1300 888 529 or use our online directory to find out who to speak to.
