About our Aboriginal Outreach Service
The Aboriginal Women and Children’s Crisis Service provide an Aboriginal Outreach Service which is based at The Infants’ Home each Monday, operating from 10.00am -1.00pm.
The Aboriginal Specialist Case Worker accepts referrals not only for Aboriginal families attending The Infants’ Home but also accepts referrals from local services within the Inner West Region of Sydney. No Aboriginal woman would be turned away if they arrive and request support.
An Aboriginal Specialist Case Worker can assist Aboriginal women and their dependent children with a range of issues such as:
- Referral and advocacy.
- Case management.
- Domestic or family violence matters.
- Housing, legal and children’s issues.
- Referral to counselling if required.
An appointment is recommended. However, no Aboriginal woman would be turned away if they arrive and request support.
