Western Sydney Community Legal Centre (WSCLC) formed in mid 2016 with the merger of three existing Community Legal Centres: Macquarie Legal Centre, Hawkesbury Nepean Community Legal Centre, and Mt Druitt and Area Community Legal Centre. WSCLC now brings the combined experience and expertise of these three CLCs to our work serving the community.
We provide free basic general legal advice in various areas of law including: Family Law, Domestic Violence, Employment Law, Wills, Motor Vehicle Accidents, Neighborhood Disputes, and Consumer Credit. WSCLC also plays an important advisory and referral role. For more info, see Our Programs.
WSCLC is a non-profit community organisation. We are funded by state and federal government bodies (for example the Attorney General’s Department), and by non-government bodies, such as Macquarie University and Western Sydney University. For more, see Our Partners. WSCLC is managed by a volunteer management committee consisting of local residents and workers with an interest in community justice.
We also provide ongoing casework services to eligible clients. Representation is provided on a case-by-case basis.
We develop and conduct Community Legal Education activities from time to time on various topics.
