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.
The health and wellbeing of our staff and clients are our top priority. Due to the spread of the Coronavirus, we will no longer be offering face to face services (walk ins, legal clinics and face to face legal advice) until further notice. We will be continuing to offer phone legal advice and provide regular updates on our website.
