how we help

The Humanitarian Group has merged with two other community legal centres, Tenancy WA and the Employment Law Centre of WA to form a new entity - Circle Green Community Legal. As of 1 October 2020, our services will be provided by Circle Green Community Legal. Click here to access Circle Green's website. 


Staff giving migration advice are Registered Migration Agents and as such adhere to the Code of Conduct set by the Migration Agents Registration Authority. A copy of the Code of Conduct is available here.


We provide professional migration assistance, legal advice and education for people new to Australia who are disadvantaged in their access to legal services.

We work with interpreters, solicitors and registered migration agents and we make sure all our services are confidential. We follow privacy laws and strict codes of conduct set out by governing bodies that protect the people we help and work with.

All of our services are provided completely free of charge to make sure we are accessible to those who need us most.


Our Services Include:


Protection Visas

These visas are issued to people outside of their home country who cannot return home because they are at risk of persecution or serious human rights violations. More…

TPV Project

We have established this project to provide free specialised legal assistance to the approximately 2,000 asylum seekers in Western Australia who arrived by boat and are subject to a new fast track assessment process to determine their eligibility to seek protection in Australia by way of a temporary visa. More...

Family Reunion

When people are forced to leave their home country due to a fear of persecution or serious human rights violations, they are often separated from their family who may still be in danger. More…

General Legal Assistance

We work closely with people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds seeking general legal advice. More…

Community Legal Education

We value an inclusive community where people new to Australia understand their rights and are treated with equality and dignity. More…
