The Western Sydney Tenants' Service (WESTS) provides free tenancy advice, referrals, advocacy and in some cases representation for residential tenants at the Tribunal. We run regular community information sessions on tenancy issues. Our services are focused but not limited to tenants from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; who are low income earners; living in social housing; who suffer isolation; and/or who have disabilities.

Our services are available to renters living in Sydney's west, from Parramatta to Mount Druitt, from Rooty Hill to Windsor. Please note, we do not offer advice on tenancy issues to landlords or real estate agents.

WESTS operates an outreach every Wednesday in Penrith from 8:30am to 4:30pm (lunch break: 1-2pm). Tenants are welcome to drop in or make an appointment (call 8833 0933 if you wish to make an appointment). The outreach is located at Muru Mittigar Centre, Ground floor, 111 Henry Street, Penrith.

WESTS is a program of the Western Sydney Community Legal Centre (WSCLC).


Sometimes you need help to get on the right track

Raymond Morris is a public housing tenant who's very active in his community – he's mentored and supported hundreds of people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Last year, Raymond put up a carport at his place to secure his car. However Housing NSW informed him that is was an illegal structure, ordered him to take it down, and also served him with an eviction notice. So Raymond got advice from the Western Sydney Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Service (WESTS) and went to the Tribunal.
