Our Work

Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW/ACT) is an Aboriginal non-government providing culturally appropriate information and referral, and legal advice and court representation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, women and children across NSW and ACT.

We assist Aboriginal people in criminal law; children’s care and protection law and family law as well as providing information and referral in civil law. We also assist work and development orders and custody notification.
