The AFL Western Sydney Indigenous Academies provide one-on-one mentoring to over 200 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in seven partner high schools in Blacktown and Campbelltown. Students of the program receive in-school specialised education sessions, additional in-class support and tuition, as well as after-school educational, sport and recreation activities to improve health and wellbeing.
KRMC has teamed up with the AFL Western Sydney Indigenous Academies to provide support in the areas of health and well-being. On Wednesday afternoons two of our indigenous staff members meet with the students at a local school . Students have also visited KRMC for a talk by Aborignal GP Registrar, Dr. Andrew Melito, a tour of the Centre and afternoon tea.
Growing Potential Limited
KRMC works closely with Growing Potential to identify and address areas where we can work together to improve health outcomes in the local community. Our first joint initiative is at Ngallu Wal in Doonside, which provides support services to Aboriginal families in Western Sydney. KRMC opened its first Outreach Clinic at Ngallu Wal in 2018 (see below).
KRMC has been working with McKenzie Dreaming since 2016. McKenzie Dreaming is delivering an Aboriginal Cultural Competency Training program to KRMC's clinical, managerial and administrative staff at the Centre.
KRMC has partnered with Ngallu Wal to set up the first KRMC Outreach Clinic for the Aboriginal community in Doonside.
The Clinic, which runs on alternate Tuesdays, is led by Dr. Phil Humphris, assisted by Aboriginal Health Support Worker, Dolie Ufi and Aboriginal Liaison Officer, Vanessa Dennis. To read more and to make an appointment in the Clinic click here.
