About Us

Aboriginal Family Legal Services Queensland (AFLSQ) operates as a non-for-profit legal service for Indigenous communities throughout Queensland and is funded by the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) and the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG).

Specialising in Family Law matters, AFLSQ aims to understand and prevent violence to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander families in Queensland to live safely within their homes and communities.

AFLSQ currently services three regions covering South West, Central Queensland, and Wide Bay Burnett. Offices are in Toowoomba (Head Office), Murgon, Gympie, Emerald and Roma are Satellite offices. From these locations, AFLSQ operates throughout high need service areas in Indigenous Communities in Regional, Rural, Remote and Very Remote (RRRR) townships in Queensland. AFLSQ’s Head Office located in Toowoomba provides the organisation’s Legal and Management support to all regional offices including Chief Executive Officer operations, Legal Support, Court Support, Marketing and Communications, and Finance.

AFLSQ will ensure that the services offered are accessible and culturally appropriate to Indigenous adults and children in the specified service regions.
