Wirringa Baiya Aboriginal Women’s Legal Centre

Wirringa Baiya (WBAWLC) provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children across NSW with a gender-specific and culturally safe service. We offer victims-survivors of DFV and sexual assault access to legal representation, advocacy, advice, referral and casework. WBAWLC was established in 1997 as a result of advocacy by Aboriginal women identifying that legal services such as Aboriginal Legal Service and Legal Aid were not meeting the cultural and legal needs of Aboriginal women and children, particularly in relation to DFV and sexual violence.

WBAWLC: Legal and non-legal support

We provide legal and non-legal support including information, referrals, legal advice, legal tasks, casework and advocacy on family and civil law matters, including any legal issue arising from DFV. WBAWLC offers Freecall telephone advice lines, drop-in services and outreach services and the Family Law Court Indigenous List (we attend with or without clients). Legal and non-legal staff attend the courts and police stations when requested by clients (depending on location and access options); and we provide free Community Legal Education throughout NSW for Aboriginal women and Aboriginal services.
