The Aboriginal Legal Service is offering an exciting opportunity to join its new ALS Child and Family Advocacy and Support (ACFAS) program. Enjoy coming to work each day with a purpose-driven organisation that makes a real difference.

The program has legal and wraparound service roles that would suit people who are passionate about keeping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families safe and out of the child protection system.

About the ALS

Born out of a protest movement, the Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW/ACT) Limited is the primary legal service for Aboriginal people in NSW and the ACT. Our vision is to achieve social justice and equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, families and communities.

We offer a diverse, inclusive and supportive work environment. We’re passionate about what we do and we work hard. The ALS values the health and wellbeing of our employees and we are proud to offer flexible work practices. Staff can choose to take advantage of benefits including salary packaging to maximise take-home pay.


About the ALS Child and Family Advocacy and Support Program

The ALS Child and Family Advocacy and Support (ACFAS) program will encompass legal and wraparound services which support families who are involved in the early stages of the child protection system and at risk of having their children removed. The holistic services will work to prevent the families from ending up in the Children’s Court.

The program will provide both a state-wide telephone advocacy referral line and face-to-face services in Dubbo, Moree and surrounding areas. This will serve as a proof of concept to inform potential future expansion across NSW. A multidisciplinary team of specialist civil and child protection solicitors, social workers, advocacy and support officers, lived experience advisors and administrators will support the clients.
