Aboriginal Specialist Workers Our Aboriginal Specialist Worker (ASW) is able to assist Aboriginal Women and their families who have experienced Domestic and Family Violence. Our ASW will assist the client/woman before, during and after court and providing her with an understanding of the court procedure, ADVO’s, mentions and hearings. The ASW can assist with referrals that are appropriate for herself and her family. This can be done at court by supporting her in the safe room on ADVO list days and hearings. An outreach service is available to make easier access for her to discuss healthy and respectful relationships, safety for her and her family, and other issues that may be needed.
