The WLS Foundation

What is ‘The Foundation’?WLS_Foundation_Logos_Facebook

Our Foundation was set up in 2012 to mark the 30 Year Anniversary of WLS NSW.  It was established as an independent activity of WLS NSW to support and promote our work and promote fundraising opportunities, where public funding is unreliable. Using the Foundation to establish an independent source of funding ensures that the WLS NSW can continue this important work.

The Foundation also campaigns for the reform of unjust laws, policy and legal processes that affect the rights and limit the lives of women, particularly those most disadvantaged in their access to justice. A key vision of the Foundation is the pursuit of a fair and just legal system for all women in NSW.

Since its inception The Foundation has united a passionate network of supporters, who attend our events, make regular donations and promote our projects.

How Can I Get Involved?
