Partnerships

Working in partnership across the community services sector has been a priority for us since day one. The more we collaborate and share our knowledge, the stronger the sector becomes and the better the outcomes for the WA community.

As we look to the future we will be continuing to build relationships and to seek out partnerships that allow us to expand and strengthen our community legal services in support of the fundamental human right to safe, secure and affordable housing.

We partner in some way with all of the organisations listed here and we thank them for their trust and support.
