Women’s Legal Service WA is committed to addressing the systemic issues that lead to gender inequality in our community. Our goal is to improve access to justice and just outcomes for women. We play an active role in advocating for law reform and policy changes to increase protection and safety for our clients and their children.
We are always looking for like-minded volunteers to assist us with this work and increase our capacity to participate in law reform change.
Our policy and law reform advocacy includes making submissions to State and Federal legal inquiries, participation in forums and roundtables to influence policy and attitudes towards legal issues affecting women, as well as ongoing advocacy with State and Federal governments through our contribution to, and support of, networks such as Domestic Violence Legal Workers Network of WA, Women’s Legal Services Australia, Community Legal Centre Association of WA. We also currently host the role of National Policy Coordinator for Women’s Legal Services Australia and play a leadership role in Commonwealth policy and law reform in family law and family violence.
