KLC SERVICES DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

KLC is committed to ensuring that our staff, students, volunteers and clients remain safe during this period. We are also trying hard to ensure that our community are looked after in the safest possible way. From 20 March 2020 we are temporarily running a reduced service for our clients. Our main office is closed and staff are working offsite so we aren’t able to provide the full level of service that we have in the past. At the moment, we are only giving advice to people who have urgent matters and we are doing that by telephone. These matters include:-

  • Urgent employment law problems, such as losing your job or not being paid your wage;
  • Being evicted from your home;
  • Not being paid your Centrelink payments;
  • Being taken to court for a debt;
  • Being charged with a criminal matter that is going to court; and
  • Advice to victims of domestic violence.

If your matter is urgent, please click here and fill out the form. We will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know if we can organise a telephone appointment, or to provide you with referrals to other organisations.

If you don’t meet this criteria you should contact Law Access on 1300 888 529 who may be able to give you a referral to another service.

Our telephone line is open from 10am to 1pm on weekdays – this will mainly be for people who can’t complete an online form – we won’t be giving advice during this time.

Please check this page regularly because as circumstances change, so too will our service delivery capacity. We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

We provide free legal advice and assistance to people who live, work or study in the Randwick and Botany Bay local government areas in NSW.

Kingsford Legal Centre can advise on matters such as Domestic Violence, Credit and Debt, Victim’s Compensation, Criminal Law, Employment Law, Discrimination Law (anywhere within NSW), Motor Vehicle Accidents, Consumer Matters and Neighbourhood Disputes.

Clinical legal education offers you the chance to learn law while practising it. You are supervised by experienced solicitors and see the law through your clients’ eyes.

Kingsford Legal Centre's volunteer solicitors are one of our most valuable assets because the Centre could not conduct the advice sessions without the involvement of these dedicated and competent lawyers.
