Eligibility for Legal Services
South West Community Legal Centre Inc. ('SWCLC') provides assistance to individuals who live within our geographical boundaries and who meet certain financial criteria.
You may be asked about your income and your assets prior to being given an appointment or at your first appointment. The means testing may be able to be waived in circumstances of financial hardship. Please speak to the lawyer about your circumstances if you feel this applies to you. Whether SWCLC can provide assistance in your matter will depend on whether you satisfy our intake requirements, and whether the solicitors have capacity to take on your matter.
SWCLC provides legal assistance services to the whole of the South West region. You will be asked for your residential address when you contact us to make an appointment.
