Welcome to AbSec

The Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Care State Secretariat (NSW) (AbSec) is a not for profit organisation. The organisation is recognised as the peak NSW Aboriginal organisation providing child protection and out-of-home care policy advice and supporting our Aboriginal Community Controlled (ACCO) Sector to deliver for Aboriginal children, families and communities.
AbSec is also responsible for building capacity in the Aboriginal disability NGO sector so that people with disability have choice in the type of services and supports they access. For more information on our work in this area, please visit our Aboriginal Disability Sector Development page.

Our Focus

AbSec’s focus is around implementing initiatives that we believe as an Aboriginal peak body, are good practice in supporting Aboriginal children, families and communities. AbSec is formed by member ACCOs delivering in the care and protection system in NSW, as well as carers (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal) and partner organisations that share our values.
AbSec auspices the Aboriginal Statewide Foster Care Support Service (ASFCSS). This service provides a FREE telephone advice and advocacy service for the carers of Aboriginal children. For more information about the ASFCSS please visit our page on Foster Care, and/or phone 1800 888 698.
