What’s this about?

The NSW Attorney General has announced a review of NSW Government support for Community Legal Centres (CLCs) in NSW. The aim of the review is to ensure that legal assistance is directed to people most in need, improve CLC service provision and assist the NSW Government in settling an approach to funding allocation. The review will be conducted by Mr Alan Cameron AO, who will be acting independently of his role at the NSW Law Reform Commission. 

The review will examine a range of issues, including:

  • The type, scope and geographical spread of CLC services that should be funded by the NSW Government
  • The funding levels that are required to enable CLCs to deliver those services
  • The funding model that should be used to inform the allocation of available funding. 

Mr Cameron is seeking input from community legal centres, organisations that provide other justice-related services, the legal profession, and the community on the terms of reference. A report on the review will be delivered to the Attorney General by mid-December 2017.
