Vale Angela Hartwig

Legal Aid WA wishes to acknowledge the very sad passing of Angela Hartwig and pay tribute to her life and contribution.

Angela was the long-serving CEO of the Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services. She worked tirelessly, selflessly, generously and fearlessly over many years to improve the safety and support for those experiencing family violence, at both an individual and systems level. 

Angela was an extraordinary person, who made an enormous contribution to improving the lives of countless people in the community and leaves an indelible, positive legacy. 

Legal Aid WA sends our sympathy and condolences to Angela’s son, as well as her many friends and colleagues.
