One woman a week is killed in Australia because of domestic violence. Every day women and children continue to live in fear.
Women’s Legal Service (WLS) is a specialist community legal centre providing free legal and social work help to those who live and identify as women. WLS assist women in the areas of family law, child support, child protection, domestic violence and some areas of sexual assault as well as providing community legal educationand participating in law reform.
Women's Legal Service helps women and their children to safer futures each year. In 2019, WLS answered over 10,000 helpline calls and delivered over 30,000 legal services. Over half of the women helped had little to no income, who would otherwise not be able to afford these expensive legal services.
Your kind support will help WLS provide life-saving, free legal and social work to help as many women in need as possible.
Your support will make a difference. Your support will change lives.
