South West Sydney Legal Centre is a community organisation that provides legal services and domestic and family violence services to thousands of people around Sydney.

Our vision: A future in which there is equality of access to justice, and women and children are free from domestic and family violence.

Our purposes: Providing equitable and accessible legal services to our community and empowering women and children to break the cycle of domestic and family violence.


When we started in 1986, we had a small budget and a part-time staff of two. Now we are one of the larger domestic and family violence services in NSW, with over 50 staff.

Our services

We provide a range of services and are supported by a committed team with diverse expertise:


We provide services to people living or working in the local government areas of Liverpool, Fairfield and Canterbury-Bankstown. We now also deliver some services in the Eastern Suburbs, Sydney City, and the Inner West.

Our legal centre is a registered charity, accredited by the National Association of Community Legal Centres and we are a member of Community Legal Centres NSW.
