Our Mission

To provide culturally appropriate Aboriginal health care services and the promotion of healthy lifestyles, well-being and good health with the support and participation of our communities.

Our Service

The need for an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS) in Inverell and surrounding district was identified by members of the local Aboriginal communities. Local community people began meeting in 1990 to discuss establishing a community controlled health service and registered Armajun Aboriginal Health Service Incorporated on the 25th January 1992. Armajun became an Aboriginal Corporation under ORIC in 2015. The name Armajun means “Open Minded”.

Armajun A.H.S. offers comprehensive holistic primary health care services to Inverell, Tingha, Ashford, Glen Innes and Tenterfield communities.
