On 12 May 2021, Western Sydney Community Legal Centre’s Multicultural Legal Service (MLS) received a Community Recognition Statement in the NSW Legislative Assembly from Dr Hugh McDermott, State Member for Prospect. We would like to thank Dr McDermott MP for his continued support of our Centre, and the recognition given to this program:  

“On Tuesday 13th April, I met with the new Multicultural Legal Service Team at the Western Sydney Community Legal Centre. Western Sydney Community Legal Centre works to increase access to justice and targets communities with the greatest legal need. Almost one-third of the Centre’s catchment hosts people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.  

This is why as part of Harmony Week 2021, Western Sydney Community Legal Centre officially launched its Multicultural Legal Service, exclusively targeting multicultural clients in Western Sydney. I was pleased to hear that in its first two months of operation Multicultural Legal Service has already commenced 6 new face-to face outreach programs and provided education seminars in conjunction with Blacktown Library. We have a wonderfully diverse community in Western Sydney and it is crucial that despite linguistic or cultural backgrounds, we provide everyone, despite their background, the equal opportunity to legal aid.  

I would like to thank Louise Coady, CEO, WSCLC, for increasing access to justice for multicultural communities. I would also like to mention Tim Leach, Executive Director, Community Legal Centres NSW, Lovemore N’Dou, Principal Solicitor, Lovemore Lawyers, and Faydi Saddik, CEO, Western Sydney Community Centre, for their involvement in the official launch.”
