Community legal centres (CLCs) are independent non-government organisations that provide free legal services to people and communities, at times 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.
Please watch the video below to learn about community legal centres and the vital work the sector does with people and communities across Australia.
