Katherine Women’s Information & Legal Service (KWILS) is a specialist Women’s Legal Service that has operated in Katherine in the Northern Territory for 25 years.
We can help all women, those who identify as women, and non-binary people in Katherine and across the Big Rivers Region. We provide free civil legal advice and representation, and wrap around support services, to ensure holistic service provision for women. We provide one on one case work, while also working towards deeper legal and cultural change to redress power imbalances, address violence against women and children, and gender and other inequalities.
In addition to individual legal assistance, KWILS provides Community Legal Education and undertakes advocacy and law reform work, with a particular focus on addressing societal and cultural practices, assumptions, behaviours and attitudes that contribute to violence against women.
