Circle Green Community Legal

About Us

Circle Green Community Legal was formed by a merger of three established and reputable specialist community legal centres in Western Australia: the Employment Law Centre of WA, The Humanitarian Group, and Tenancy WA on 1 October 2020.

Circle Green is a community legal centre in WA providing state-wide specialist legal services in workplace and employment law, residential tenancy law, family and domestic violence, and humanitarian services aimed at assisting people who are otherwise disadvantaged in their access to legal services. 

We provide legal advice, further assistance, representation, duty lawyer services, outreach, community legal education, and advocacy.

Our vision

Accessible justice.

To create a system, place, and space to ensure a safety net of world-class legal advice, education, and advocacy in our specialist fields.


Our values 

It must be fair, it must be equitable – We are committed to creating access and inclusion to legal advice, education and advocacy so human and social rights can be upheld.

Our support is holistic – We do not process clients through linear legal advice. We create the space and system for a wraparound support that addresses client needs.

We collaborate for change – We are stronger together. We create the space for collaboration with our partners, our staff, our stakeholders, and with government and our clients. We hold this space, and welcome in partners who can help create better access and permanent solutions.

We get back up – We accept uncertainty, accept challenges time and again, and create a support system for each other so we can create a better world.


This is how we fight for access to justice for all.
