South West Sydney Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (SWSTAAS) provides advice to tenants, duty advocacy in the Tribunal, and community education to frontline workers as well as tenants. Also, as appropriate, SWSTAAS provides advocacy referral, and representation in the Tribunal – conciliation and/or formal hearing. We also engage in systemic advocacy work and participate in policy and law reform work concerning housing law in general.
We also offer face-to-face advice by appointment, or a drop-in session on Fridays 9.30am – 12pm. We run outreaches by appointment in Liverpool and Fairfield, and in Campbelltown Local Court – referrals through Macarthur Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Services.
SWSTAAS is a program of Macarthur Legal Centre.
