About Us

The Far West Community Legal Centre (FWCLC) was formed as a result of a Federal Government initiative that identified a need for more accessible legal services in the Far West.

A public meeting was called in 1999 and an interested group of people formed an incorporated association and made a submission for funding. The submission was successful and the management committee established a community based legal service. The Far West Community Legal Centre Ltd. was officially opened on 18 July 2000.

The Far West Community Legal Centre is committed to providing a responsive service for people in the Far West who have the least access to justice. 

The Far West Community Legal Centre is funded to provide free legal information, advice and referrals to ALL residents and service providers in the Far West region of NSW, and targeted legal assistance to people on low incomes, and those experiencing significant disadvantage.

The Far West Community Legal Centre is managed by a volunteer Board of Management. Residents of the Far West region are invited to become members of the Association.

The Far West Community Legal Centre is committed to the provision of free and accessible legal services, including:

  • Free Legal Advice

  • Advocacy

  • Representation

  • Education

  • Referral

  • Reform
