Aboriginal legal access program

 

The Community Legal Centres NSW Aboriginal Legal Access Program (ALAP) makes a significant contribution to access to justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in NSW by:

  • Embedding cultural safety into the framework of community legal centres;
  • Improving the numbers of Aboriginal staff in the legal sector, and thereby strengthening community connections to civil and early intervention legal services;
  • Role-modeling employment pathways and culturally appropriate settings for legal education;
  • Delivering legal information and advice; and
  • Developing and supporting relationships between community legal centres and local Aboriginal community controlled organisations and groups, including developing MOUs with the ALS and with Tranby College.
