Out of home care children’s clinic

Health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children

Our Koolin Balit children’s clinic provides culturally safe health care specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children aged 0-18 living in out of home care.

Service details

The service aims to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children by looking at each child’s physical health, growth, speech and psychological wellbeing. Once we understand the needs of each child, we develop a health management plan that can be used by child protection workers, community service case managers and carers.

Our health care team is made up of:

  • A specialist children’s doctor
  • An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health worker
  • A speech therapist
  • A mental health worker

The team works with each child and their carer and/or case manager to develop the health management plan.

This service runs monthly on Monday’s (excluding public holidays) from 9.00am – 1.00pm
