Home » About Us » Catchment Area
Barwon Community Legal Service provides free legal advice and assistance to people who live in the Geelong/Barwon area including the City of Greater Geelong, Borough of Queenscliffe, Surf Coast, Colac Otway and Golden Plains Shires.
Our catchment region contains a total population of around 250,000, with many pockets of extreme disadvantage. In fact, the area of Greater Geelong alone has one of the highest rates of disadvantage in rural Victoria, both in absolute numerical terms as well as its concentration.
Many areas within the region are a considerable distance from Geelong and we are able to provide assistances to clients via our free 1300 430 599 phone number.
