About the role
The Aboriginal Family Violence Legal Service (AFVLS) is a program of Djirra. AFVLS provides legal and nonlegal assistance and facilitates access to justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have experienced family violence or sexual assault.
AFVLS operates a culturally safe, trauma informed, and holistic client service model. Clients are assisted by Lawyers and Paralegal Support Workers to access a variety of legal, social, psychological, cultural, health and other support services to address their complex needs and issues.
Djirra will be expanding its hours of operation into the evening on weekdays to support to Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander people experiencing or who have experienced family violence. The role of the PLSW After Hours is to receive legal services referrals from the After Hours phone staff the following day and to provide non-legal support to clients being supported by the Lawyer-After Hours Service.
