Our Aboriginal Legal Access Program (ALAP) works in conjunction with our Community Legal Services Program (CLSP) to provide free socio-legal support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients accessing our CLSP legal services.
HOW DOES ALAP PROVIDE SOCIO-LEGAL SUPPORT?
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients who wish to engage with our ALAP worker will receive a culturally-appropriate debrief after accessing legal advice.
In addition to a debrief, depending on need, clients may also receive one-off or ongoing practical support to assist in the overall management of their legal issues. For example, our ALAP may offer a letter of support to be given to a court, may act as a support person in legal appointments, or may act as a support person at court.
ALAP may also link up clients to culturally-specific holistic social services relating to issues like housing, money, employment, relationships and health and wellbeing.
