KCLS is an independent, not-for-profit community legal service. We provide free legal, financial counselling and tenancy services to financially disadvantaged people in the Kimberley.
KCLS is the largest remotely located civil law service in Australia, and 84 per cent of our clients are Aboriginal.
We operate across Western Australia’s Kimberley region from our offices in Kununurra and Broome, servicing urban and remote towns and communities.
Over the past two years DVassist has been offering a telephone and webchat counselling service as part of a pilot project funded by the Commonwealth Government.
The project is now complete and consequently our counselling services are no longer operating as of Friday 21 October 2022.
