Aboriginal Legal Service planning tool launch

The Foundation has launched a new Aboriginal Legal Service planning tool which users can access via Tableau Public. The aim of the planning tool is to support the important work the ALS do in providing legal assistance and to help them plan to meet demand for their Criminal Law Practice. A 2012-2017 table has replaced the 2012-2016 table, which allows trends to be tracked over a six-year period.

The planning tool allows users to break down data on finalised matters with Aboriginal defendants across 147 courts in NSW by court type (Local, Children's, District, Supreme).

About the planning tool

To create the planning tool, the Foundation sourced Criminal Court statistics on finalised matters with Aboriginal defendants from BOCSAR and developed a proxy to indicate potential demand for ALS services.* 

Users can filter and combine data by ALS Office, or by ALS Region or ALS cluster. The table links to the ALS service structure as at January 2019. Visit ALS website
* Indigenous status as recorded in BOCSAR data includes people who identified as Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or both.
