Street Law Centre

Street Law is a free outreach legal service for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness in Western Australia.

OUR UPDATES

People experiencing homelessness face violations of a wide range of human rights.

These include the right to an adequate standard of living (including the right to adequate housing), the right to privacy, to education, the right to liberty and security of the person, the right to freedom from discrimination, and many more.

#HumanRightsDay is a day to reflect; but it's also a reminder of how far we still have to go.

We ❤️ our volunteers!

It's simple - we would not be able to assist as many clients as we do without the generous contribution from our volunteers.

In the last financial year alone they contributed over 2322 hours of their time, and their work was worth more than DOUBLE our operating budget for that year.

From everyone here at Street Law, we say thank you to all of our volunteers, past and present. We couldn't do it without you! 👏

Today is the International Day to End Violence Against Women. 👭

Domestic and family abuse is one of the key pathways into homelessness in Australia.

What's more, is that violence against women exposes children and young people to similar treatment. 👩‍👧‍👧
