Aboriginal Visitors Scheme

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 1800 282 429.
