Illawarra Legal Centre is a Centre rich in history, that is currently undergoing an exciting period of growth within their service.

  • The Vulnerable Women Specialist Case Worker is an exciting new position for ILC. Working closely with a Vulnerable Women Specialist Solicitor, the role is designed to help vulnerable women access legal support, while actively working to minimise safety risks.
  • The role is primarily place based, delivering services at Women’s services within the Illawarra, ensuring women can obtain support, without requiring multiple visits to multiple services. The VWSC works in trauma informed practice framework, and the primary role is to support women with the multiple complex issues, navigate the issues which are evident in their lives, but which are not directly legal matters.
  • Additionally, the role relies on strong Casework services in targeted areas and will also be providing Community Legal Education and participating in policy and law reform activities.
