    About the team

    The Civil Law Service for Aboriginal Communities (CLSAC) is an interdisciplinary team within the Civil Law Division that delivers holistic, client-centred and culturally responsive services by phone and outreach to Aboriginal clients and communities. CLSAC works with Aboriginal communities and community workers to increase their capacity to deal with civil law problems and to work in partnership with other legal and non-legal services. The Aboriginal Women Leaving Custody (AWLC) program sits within CLSAC. AWLC addresses the civil law needs of Aboriginal women while they are in custody, to reduce barriers to housing on the transition back into the community, as well as reducing other factors that may contribute to ongoing disadvantage. AWLC staff provide civil law advice and casework services to women in custody at Silverwater Correctional Centre, with the program expanding to the Mid-North Coast Correctional Centre at Kempsey.
