Objects of the Women’s Legal Centre ACT and Region

The Women’s Legal Centre is established is to promote and protect justice, equality and independence for all women. The Centre does this by:
a) providing professional, specialist legal services to women;
b) supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women’s access to justice through individual and systemic advocacy;
c) prioritising service for women who need our services the most, including women on low incomes, women experiencing violence, and women disadvantaged by pregnancy, breastfeeding or family responsibilities, race, culture or religion, disability, age, sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
d) informing the community about the law and legal system as it affects women;
e) providing expert law and policy advice to the community, government and other stakeholders on domestic violence and other forms of sex discrimination and gender equality;
f) any other objects determined by the Board which are consistent with the Centre being a public benevolent institution; and
g) to cooperate with any other organisation in furtherance of these objects.
