About Us

Community Legal Centres Australia is the national peak body for the Community Legal Sector, in particular community legal centres across Australia.

We are an independent, non-profit organisation established to support the community legal sector and ensure provision of free and accessible legal and related services to everyday people, including people experiencing discrimination and disadvantage. Our members are the State and Territory peak bodies of Community Legal Centres.

Together, our organisations represent 181 Community Legal Centres across Australia, as well as some Family Violence Prevention Legal Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services.
