Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

We acknowledge our work in the community takes place on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri Tribe of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s strong connection to country and community. We offer our respect to the elders of these traditional lands, and through them to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Inner East Community Health Service

We are a health service for all and welcome those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent to use our services. Our services are listed on our website.

We may ask you whether you identify as someone of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin. You do not have to  give this information.  However, it would  help us to ensure that we give you thorough and proper care which is tailored to your needs as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person.
