As a parent, she is actually not doing anything unlawful in supplying alcohol to her 15 yo son in her own home... in NSW anyway, it may vary from state to state
You would have to prove that in doing so, she was irresponsible in her supervision... Things like supplying when the child was intoxicated, if she was intoxicated herself, what quantity was supplied & over what time, was it supplied with food etc...
Unless you can absolutely prove any of the above, rather than trying to make a huge issue out of it with law or child protection agencies, maybe you would do better to educate your son regarding alcohol consumption & that he should refuse it in future if offered..
If any of the above circumstances re breaches of responsibility do apply, the police would probably be the first point of contact

Thank you for your replies. After writing this OP I searched up the police website and found the info that you touched on Jazzz. And Yes two other boys were present drinking under her roof with my son also. Sad times really.
I have had a good talk with my son, he understands the seriousness of what has gone down.
Personally I don't think a 15 yo should be drinking at all, but while one low alcohol drink on a special occasion may be acceptable, anything beyond that is cause for concern IMO
Certainly if this should become a regular occurrence, then her role as a responsible supervisor should be called into question & bought to the attention of police, who may advise you who best to handle it if not them
