Women's Legal Service WA

Justice for Women

$

Despite many strides in addressing gender inequality in Australia, women continue to be disadvantaged, with the statistics of lower wages, less seniority and less superannuation well known. With continued under-recognition for much unpaid work, particularly the key role that women perform as carers of children and others, women are also highly over-represented as victims of family and domestic violence (and resulting homelessness), sexual harassment, sexual violence and elder abuse.

At Women’s Legal Service WA we provide an emotionally and culturally safe space for women who - not surprisingly – are often in complex situations, disempowered and unable to see which way to turn. Applying our core-values, we sensitively assess individual needs, assisting access to justice through quality information and advice, the fostering of informed choices and wherever possible a joined up, holistic approach through referrals and arrangements with the many organisations both legal and non legal with whom we collaborate and partner.

Your donation will provide sensitive, female focussed legal services, information and support to vulnerable West Australian women in desperate need. Most importantly it is free thanks to the support of Government and donors like you.

Help us continue and expand our services to help more women in need. Your donation could provide a vulnerable woman:

  • Assistance with negotiations and mediations.
  • Advice to women undergoing family law proceedings through the Perth Family Relationships Centre.
  • Assistance and representation of women in the Family Court of WA, Children’s Court and Magistrates Court in the Perth metropolitan area and in regional Courts through our outreach service.
  • Court representation.
  • Assistance to women in making claims for Criminal Injuries Compensation as a result of domestic and family violence or sexual assault
