New chief for family law service
A new chief executive of the WA Aboriginal Family Law Services has been appointed this month.
The organisation, which provides legal services and community education for Aboriginal people living in regional WA who have been subject to family violence or sexual assault, has announced former AFLS principal legal officer Corina Martin as its new chief executive.
She replaces Mary Cowley, who has left AFLS after four years in charge.
Ms Martin has previously worked with Legal Aid WA, the Aboriginal Legal Service and the Northern Australian Aboriginal Justice Association, and was a founder of the Kimberley Community Legal Service.
She said she was looking forward to further expanding and innovating AFLS for its clients.
AFLS has regional offices in Port Hedland, Broome, Kununurra, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie-Boulder and Carnarvon.
