South West Sydney Legal Centre was established in 1986 to deliver legal services for people living or working in the South West Sydney Local Government Areas of Liverpool, Fairfield and Bankstown. We now also deliver services in the Eastern Suburbs, Sydney City, and the Inner West. We started with a very small budget and a part-time staff of two people.
We are now a multi-facetted and multidisciplinary organisation, with over 50 staff, providing legal services, community legal education, and a range of support and case management services to women and children who have experienced domestic and family violence.
Our legal centre is a registered charity, accredited by the National Association of Community Legal Centres and we are a member of Community Legal Centres NSW.
In 2016/17, our services assisted more than 6,000 people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds.
