Our Impact

We're By Your Side

Care for community. Fight for justice.

Central Coast Community Legal Centre is a community-owned, community-run, not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to stand with our Central Coast community to help them face and overcome legal challenges in their lives. We believe there can be no such thing as justice without equal access to legal advice and information for everyone—and this is our area of specialist expertise.

How We Create Change


the legal system is so complex, the process can feel overwhelmbing and traumatising, especially for those who experience disadvantage.

We respond by...

providing legal help to tackle legal issues in people's lives as early as possible...then translating what we see on the ground to educate community and influence those making law and policy decisions.

Which results in...

people being able to navigate the complexity of the legal system, feeling in control and with less trauma.

And leads to...

people securing more positive outcomes for themselves from the legal system, which in turn gives them the opportunity to pursue better life outcomes.

Just the facts...

In 2020-21, we:


people with their legal problems


unrepresented defendants at Court

Provided over

referrals to other legal and non-legal services


legal information workshops

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live and work here on the NSW Central Coast. We pay respect to the Darkinyung people, their Elders both past and present and their youth who are their future leaders. This is Aboriginal land, Darkinjung land. Always was Always will be, sovereignty never ceded.
