The Barbra Schlifer Clinic offers legal representation, professional counselling and multilingual interpretation to women who have experienced violence. Our diverse, skilled and compassionate staff accompany women through personal and practical transformation, helping them to build lives free from violence.
We are a centre by, for and about women. We amplify women's voices, and cultivate their skills and resilience. Together with our donors and volunteers, we are active in changing the conditions that threaten women's safety, dignity and equality.
