Who are we?
Aboriginal Family Legal Service WA
Aboriginal Family Legal Service is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation, providing specialist legal assistance and related social support services to Aboriginal people experiencing family violence and/or sexual assault across seven regions in Western Australia. Our mission is to support Aboriginal survivors to access legal services, and to promote safe families through community education, early intervention, prevention and advocacy, to end cycles of violence and improve outcomes for Aboriginal families and communities. Our vision is that Aboriginal people are safe and free from family violence and sexual assault, and are empowered to self-determine.
