The Aboriginal Visitors Scheme (AVS) is a group of Aboriginal staff who visit prisons and detention centres around the state, providing support and counselling to Aboriginal people in custody.
All visitors are employed on a casual, rostered basis.
Visitors cannot help with money, legal or medical matters but can make referrals to appropriate agencies.
Families concerned about a relative in custody can contact the AVS directly on +61 8 6254 8600.
