Sydney Aboriginal Family Support Service (SAFSS), is a new organisation with a fresh approach, our vision is of Aboriginal people empowering Aboriginals. At Sydney Aboriginal Family Support Service, we offer Aboriginal families cultural safety and cultural responsiveness.   We believe that a single action can make a difference in families lives, and that collective action can greatly impact community.  Our team works tirelessly each day taking a strengths based person centred trauma informed approach to empower and inspire the families we work with.

Our Story

Dealing with the challenges that Aboriginal families of today face requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives.  Sydney Aboriginal Family Support Service emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support Aboriginal families and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We’re an organisation driven by Integrity, Respect, Courage, Compassion and Innovation. Our team of highly qualified Aboriginal professionals offer progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of Aboriginal connection with cultural expertise. Contact us to learn more and get involved.

Aboriginal Family Contact & Supervision

Family contacts can be extremely emotive and trauma inducing for Aboriginal families.  With a high level of Aboriginal Cultural expertise and a trauma informed child centred approach, our highly professional Aboriginal Family contact workers aim to make every Aboriginal family contact positive and empowering. Our culturally responsive practice promotes a cultural safe space so that Aboriginal families can focus on connection.


One Step At A Time

Sydney Aboriginal Family Support Service strives to innovate and find new strategies for dealing with complex challenges faced by Aboriginal families. This is something that we take very seriously, and our team works each and every day to make a positive impact. We believe that every contact we have with families is an opportunity to effect positive change.


Aboriginal Mentors

Sydney Aboriginal Family Support team has a range of highly trained professional Aboriginal mentors.  We have both female and male Aboriginal mentors available that stem from a range of professional backgrounds such as teachers, lawyers, IT, building and Elders.  Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.


Cultural Safety

SAFSS acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal peoples across the nation.

We are excited to announce that Aboriginal Family Assessments are now available.


Transportation for Children & Families

Aboriginal children and families may feel disempowered, triggered, or unsafe during transportation.  This will be exacerbated if cultural safety and understanding is not present.  SAFSS aims to reduce this impact with a high level of Aboriginal Cultural expertise, Aboriginal workers, and an Aboriginal lens on trauma informed child centred practice. We offer Aboriginal Families a culturally appropriate service that promotes cultural safety during transportation. Contact us today!
