We also provide casework and court representation services within the Perth metropolitan area. Unfortunately, our court representation service is currently restricted to Children’s Court matters as a result of various funding cuts.

In addition to client services, Youth Legal Service plays an active role in raising awareness of the legal rights and responsibilities of children and young people. We regularly conduct community education, advocacy and law reform activities.
