This website has been designed by Legal Aid WA to be simple to use by as many people as possible.

Legal Aid WA's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan sets out our commitment to ensuring that people with disability are able to fully access the services provided by Legal Aid WA, including this website, to provide them with the same opportunities, rights and responsibilities enjoyed by other people in the community.

The accessibility features on our website include:

  • Top and side menus, and quick navigation links at the top and bottom of the page.
  • Back to Top arrow button at the bottom of each page.
  • Quick Exit button to improve internet safety for people.
  • Printer-friendly pages.


Our website is designed to be easy to read on screens and mobile devices. We have set our pages to be printer-friendly and easy to read on paper, but not everything shown on screen will end up being printed. How it looks on your screen may be different to how it will look on paper.


The resources available to read and download from our website are almost exclusively in Adobe PDF. Some forms are provided in Microsoft Word Document, to allow you to type directly into the forms. Our videos are saved in .mp4 format. If you cannot open these types files on your computer or device, you can download free software that will allow you to view our resources.
