Projects

Indigenous Women's Project (IWP)

TEWLS receives funding from the Commonwealth Prime Minister & Cabinet through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy to service Indigenous women in the Top End. Our project aim is to provide culturally appropriate, proactive and responsive legel services to Indigenous women in our identified town communities and the Darwin Correctional Precinct. 

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD)

TEWLS has identified a need for legal and referral services to be provided to women who are either newly arrived or from culturally diverse backgrounds.

TEWLS provides a monthly advice clinic to women attending the Adult Migrant Education Program (AMEP) at Charles Darwin University, as well as providing interpreters for clients attending our Palmerston and Darwin clinics.

Women in Prison

TEWLS provides a fortnightly advice clinic to women in prison in Darwin, as well as a monthly community legal education workshop.

TEWLS is involved in the prison Throughcare network, working with Top End service providers to ensure that client needs are met while they are incarcerated.
