Top End Women's Legal Service Inc.

Funding for free legal services for women

Support the provision of free legal services for women

In the 2019-2020 financial year, TEWLS helped over 2,700 women in the Top End.

However, the demand for our service continues to exceed capacity, and every year we are forced to turn-away women who will otherwise be unable to access legal assistance. In the 2019-2020 financial year, this figure rose to 1,500 women who were unable to receive legal advice and assistance from TEWLS due to insufficient service capacity.

Your donation will assist TEWLS to help even more women in the Greater Darwin region – no matter the size, every donation will help us to continue providing essential free legal services to all women in the Top End.

All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.


The Top End Women’s Legal Service (TEWLS) is a community legal centre focused on the advancement of women’s rights.

Established in 1996 following the Australian Law Reform Commission’s Inquiry into Equality before the Law, TEWLS is a not for profit specialist women’s legal service providing free legal services for women in the Top End of the Northern Territory. Our purpose is to advocate to achieve justice for women, to promote women’s human rights, and to redress inequalities experienced by women. Our vision is a community in which women enjoy and are entitled to legal and social justice. 

We provide high quality, responsive and culturally appropriate legal advice, casework and representation, community legal education, and advocacy in the areas of civil and family law to women living in the Greater Darwin region. TEWLS is able to provide free legal advice to all women, or persons identifying as women, regardless of their circumstances.

TEWLS provides a vital role for women in the Top End. At an individual level, the service responds to and facilitates women’s experiences and realities on a personal basis, with specialist holistic information, referral, advice, casework and community legal education services. At a systemic level, client’s collective experiences establish a salient foundation and platform for informed service advocacy and systemic improvement via law reform submissions.

Demands for service consistently exceed capacity, where TEWLS are forced to turn away women seeking legal services when they need it most.

Your generous donation will help TEWLS to deliver essential, free legal services to more women in the Top End of the Northern Territory - we are grateful for any assistance that you are able to provide.
