The mid-north coast of New South Wales will soon have better access to legal services with a new community legal centre to open in Port Macquarie early next year.

A joint initiative of the Commonwealth and NSW Governments, the new legal centre will be operated by Disability Advocacy NSW and will be funded by the Commonwealth Government, which has allocated $600,000 over three years, and Legal Aid NSW, which has allocated a further $330,000 over three years.

"The new service will play a key role in ensuring disadvantaged residents of the region have greater access to legal assistance to encourage early resolution of disputes before they escalate," said Attorney-General Robert McClelland.

"The new centre will significantly improve access to legal services for the mid-north coast, providing assistance on a range of legal and related matters to people on low incomes and those with special needs."

The centre is expected to be operational in the first half of 2011, based in Port Macquarie with outreach services to Taree and Kempsey.
