ABOUT US

Who we are & how we work

The Centre improves women’s lives through specialist legal representation, support and advocacy.

We do this by:

  • Providing high quality legal services, including representation and law reform activities, to support women’s safety, access to rights and entitlements,
  • Maintaining a holistic legal practice including multi-disciplinary and trauma-informed services,
  • Collaborating with partners in the community sector, private profession and government,
  • Building government and community capacity to better understand issues facing women and the value of legal assistance.

We are a feminist service with a strong values base.

This means we understand the legal issues facing women and their experience of the legal system within a broader analysis of systemic gender inequality. We are committed to providing individual services whilst also working towards deeper legal and cultural change to redress power imbalances and address violence and gender inequality.

This also affects the way we provide services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children. We recognise there are systemic barriers that prevent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women enforcing their rights and are committed to addressing legal and justice issues within a cultural and community context.
