About the organisation

Organisation Name : Central Australian Women's Legal Service

Started by a group of dedicated female legal practitioners, who were providing free advice to women in need, Central Australian Women’s Legal Service (CAWLS) was formed in the early 1990s and soon grew to a full-time legal service. Now funded by both the Federal and Territory Governments, they deliver a range of holistic, culturally safe, and trauma-informed services across the Central Australia and Barkly regions, including legal assistance/advice and other, specialised support services for those affected by domestic violence.

The CAWLS team is committed to creating a bright and safe future for all women and children, helping them to live free from all forms of violence and abuse. Their vision is to enable, educate, and empower women to better engage in the legal system, so their rights are considered and respected, and in doing so further assist the community to achieve social justice health.
