Our work in Aboriginal health

Our vision for Reconciliation

Our vision for reconciliation is grounded in the belief that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should enjoy the same health outcomes as non-Indigenous Australians. We are committed to building and strengthening our community relationships, and to improving the health, social and economic outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Our services

We are committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to thrive through improved health and wellbeing.

To achieve this we listen, learn and work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, communities and organisations to design, create and deliver services that focus on the physical, social, emotional, cultural and spiritual wellbeing, for both the individual and the community.

We recognise the important role Aboriginal controlled organisations play in improving the health and wellbeing of communities – that’s why we seek out partnerships with these organisations and services; ensuring our work is informed directly by the people and communities we support.

Denise, Wiradjuri Elder from Wellington, discusses why our pilot diabetes support Winya Marang program is important to the local community.

Our staff

We create employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and work to ensure people with lived experience and community understanding are at the forefront of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services.

For our services to be effective, we know we need a team who are passionate, and trusted by the people in the communities they work in. That’s why we ensure our staff share our commitment to closing the gap and undergo regular training and upskilling to ensure they are providing the level of support that meets the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
