Service Suspensions

ATSILS teamed up with the members of the Queensland Legal Assistance Forum to produce a range of community legal education resources under the banner: Which Way – Protect Your Legal Rights!

The suite of resources was developed by First Nations Creative Agency – Gilimbaa and with key messaging aimed at enhancing community access to legal assistance options for domestic violence and child safety matters.

The resources were launched this week by our Director of Communications and Sector Engagement – Graham White and will be distributed throughout our partner networks to get the key messages out to our communities.

We thank the Queensland Government – Department of Justice and Attorney General for assisting in funding the project and all partners for their contributions.

 

Which Way – Protect Your Legal Rights!

We have a range of posters we would like to distribute throughout our partner networks to ensure our communities know there are a range of legal assistance providers available to assist them with Child Safety and Domestic Violence matters. If you would like a copy of the posters below please email: joshua.herd@atsils.org.au. 

Alternatively, you are welcome to download and print a PDF version using the links below.

Service Suspensions
Today marks the 16th anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations delivered by former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.
We stand with the Stolen Generations and honour their spirit of survival in striving to overcome the extreme trauma and injustice caused by child removal and assimilation policies.
With the current rates of child removals continuing to spiral at unacceptable rates, we call on all levels of government to take more action. This is a crisis across the nation and more support is needed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led organisations and community initiatives striving to keep children connected with their families, kin and country.
If you need support on your journey to reunite with your people and country contact Link-Up (Qld).
Link-Up (Qld) aims to bring a sense of peace, identity and belonging to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who have been separated from their family and culture.
