Welcome to Sydney Aboriginal Family Support Service (SAFSS), an innovative organisation with a vision of Aboriginal people empowering Aboriginals.
We provide culturally safe and responsive support to Aboriginal families. At SAFSS, we believe that even a single action has the power to make a profound difference in the lives of families, and through collective action, we can greatly impact the entire community.
Our team is committed to working tirelessly each day, guided by a strengths-based, person-centered, trauma-informed approach. We understand the unique strengths and challenges that Aboriginal families face, and we strive to empower and inspire them to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
Cultural safety is at the core of our practice. We recognise the importance of creating an environment where Aboriginal families can feel respected, understood, and valued. By incorporating cultural protocols, traditions, and values into our support, we ensure that our services are culturally responsive and meaningful.
Collective action is a driving force behind our work. We believe in the power of communities coming together to create lasting change. By collaborating with families, community organisations, and other stakeholders, we maximise our impact and create a supportive network that fosters growth and resilience.
Together, we can build a brighter future where Aboriginal families thrive and Aboriginal culture is celebrated. Join us on this empowering journey as we work hand in hand to create lasting change and inspire hope in the lives of Aboriginal families.
Safeguarding the well-being and protecting the rights of Aboriginal families, particularly children, necessitates a comprehensive child protection understanding. At the SAFSS, we recognise the critical importance of ensuring a secure environment for all children. Our organisation emerged as a response to the challenges faced by Aboriginal families today, aiming to provide effective solutions and support. Driven by a strong sense of integrity, respect, courage, compassion, and innovation, we work diligently within the framework of child protection to address the unique needs and concerns of Aboriginal children and their families.
Our team comprises highly qualified practitioners who possess deep cultural expertise and a profound understanding of the complexities surrounding child protection. With their progressive ideas and bold actions, they offer innovative approaches tailored to the specific cultural context and challenges faced by Aboriginal families. By fostering a strong foundation of Aboriginal connection, we aim to empower families and create an environment where children can thrive.
We invite you to contact us and learn more about SAFSS work, as well as how you can actively engage and contribute to the well-being of Aboriginal children and families.
