About the Centre

Central Coast Community Legal Centre (Central Coast CLC) is a not for profit community organisation based on Darkinjung Country in Wyong on the NSW Central Coast. Established in 1996, the Central Coast CLC is one of almost 200 legal services operating across Australia.

Our purpose is to stand with our Central Coast community to help them face and overcome legal challenges in their lives. We do this by providing free, accessible, and non-judgmental legal services to people living, working, or studying on the NSW Central Coast.
