Aboriginal Health

The Aboriginal Health Team provides culturally appropriate and secure services to the Aboriginal community across the Perth metropolitan area with children from birth to five years.

We provide additional support to families through targeted and intensive services, specifically designed for vulnerable families.

Our services focus on children, adolescents, young people and their families.

These teams have Aboriginal Health Workers and Community Health Nurses who provide specialised health services for Aboriginal families.

The Team also has a Medical Officer, a Speech Pathologist, an Occupational Therapist, Aboriginal Health Promotion Officers, and an Aboriginal Liaison Officer who work with the local teams and Aboriginal families.
