Our Values

 

AFLSQ’s values reflect our support for clients, through unity, respect, and justice. Unlike larger organisations, AFLSQ have narrowed down our expertise and professional practice that understands the needs of our valued clients, in a culturally appropriate way. We aim to always find a solution, with our partnerships, we as a service are able to aid in referring clients in the right direction relevant to their individual circumstances.
