Women in Prison

The Women's Law Centre provides legal assistance and community legal education to women at Bandyup Women's Prison and Boronia Pre-Release Centre for Women through the support of the Public Purposes Trust of the Law Society of Western Australia.

Network of FRCs partnering with CLCs

The Women's Law Centre hosts the Network Coordinator of WA CLCs partnering with Family Relationship Centres (FRCs). The purpose of the Network is to facilitate collaboration among CLCs and FRCs.

The CLCs who are partnered with FRCs ensure that legal services are available to FRC clients. Legal services are delivered in partnership with FRCs in ways that enhance separating parents' options and ability to resolve family law issues safely and in the children's best interests.
