Katherine Women’s Information and Legal Service (KWILS) is a specialist women’s legal service for women, by women. We are working for a future where women and their children are safe, living with dignity and respect.
Our aim is to make sure that all women in Katherine and the Big Rivers Region have access to justice through free and professional legal services.
KWILS delivers specialist services to women, particularly those who face additional barriers for reasons including race, culture, remoteness, disability, language, poverty, age and sexuality.
The first step can feel the hardest, but we want you to know that you don’t have to do it on your own.
Talking to us does not mean that you must start a legal process. We are here if you need some information to help you decide what to do next and once you have the information, it’s your choice what to do next.
We can connect you with the right services and work with you as you navigate your options. We can also help you with safety planning, so you can stay safe into the future.
