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. BCLS also provide services limited to tenancy and renting matters in Corangamite, Moyne, Warrnambool, Glenelg and Southern Grampians shires.
Our catchment region contains a population of over 360,000, 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 available services and we are able to provide assistances to clients via our free 1300 430 599 phone number.
