Illawarra Legal Centre
The Illawarra Legal Centre is an independent, not-for-profit, community based legal centre. We provide free legal services to the public by telephone, at our centre and at a range of outreach locations.
We focus on helping people living with disadvantage and people with special needs. We are one of nearly 180 community legal centres across Australia.

COVID-19 Policing: Have you been stopped by police or had any interaction with police since the new public health rules were introduced in your area? Do you feel you have been treated unfairly? Do you know of an incident that concerns you? You can report it on the COVID-19 Policing in Australia website. This collaborative project is run by legal and human rights advocacy organisations.
Our thoughts are with communities across Australia during this terrible bushfire season that we are experiencing. While this is an uncertain time for so many of us, Illawarra Legal Centre (ILC) will continue to offer free legal advice to the members of our community who may have been impacted.
During times like these, serious legal issues can escalate quickly if not addressed. ILC is one of the many Community Legal Centres across the state that are ready to support the individuals and families that need us.
Communities can face unforeseen legal problems and barriers during and after bushfires. As well as having to manage any pre-existing legal issues they may have.
