Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Services
How we can help you
We have a range of free services that help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people to stay healthy. If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island person you can access all of our general services plus the services below.
Aboriginal Health workers
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can get help from our Aboriginal Health Workers for any health problems.
Our Aboriginal Health Workers can help you understand ways to manage your health problems. They can organise and take you to your appointments. They can also speak with your doctors and go to appointments with you to offer support.
You can see an Aboriginal Health Worker at the Community Health Centre at La Perouse or they can visit you in your own home.
