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.

About the role
The purpose of this role is to administer the collecting and recording of data for the new ALS Child and Family Advocacy and Support (ACFAS) program.
Data will be captured for all ACFAS legal and wraparound services, referrals, advice, activities and tasks, as well as clients and demographics. This will enable ACFAS to be monitored and evaluated, and inform the ALS and Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) on potential future expansions. The data will also inform advocacy work to improve child protection law and policies.
About the ALS Child and Family Advocacy and Support Program
ACFAS is a new family-oriented justice program that aims to keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families safe and out of the child protection system. The program will encompass legal and wraparound services that support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families at risk of having their children removed and work together to prevent them from ending up in the Children’s Court.
