Nindilingarri Cultural Health Service
Nindilingarri Cultural Health Services is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation, which began in 1995, following a wide reaching community consultation. The clear message from this consultation was that the community wanted a holistic, culturally appropriate service that recognises the impact of Aboriginal Law, Culture, Spirit and Land issues on the health of the Community.
Today, Nindilingarri provides comprehensive health promotion programs and prevention services that address the need for supportive environments and building community capacity, as well as providing education and skills development for local people. The different health promotion programs including maternal health, child health, and an alcohol and other drugs team, which actively work to promote to mothers, fathers and families, the benefits of an alcohol-free pregnancy. A range of measures are implemented across the individual, family and community level by providing education and support to prevent FASD in our Fitzroy Valley Community.
The Marulu Unit and Marninwarntikura works with Nindilingarri Cultural Health Services to deliver health education to our Fitzroy Valley Community.
