Nunyara Aboriginal Health Service Inc.

Prior to 2003, there were only two Aboriginal Health Workers in Whyalla. Due to access and equity issues raised in 1996 and the overall appalling state of health in the broader Aboriginal community, Nunyara Wellbeing Centre was established.

Nunyara integrates Indigenous holistic models of health care with western models, so that the benefits of both may assist the community. The organisation recognises the wide range of factors that impact on wellbeing including poverty, relationships and the environment, and is working to strengthen the community’s capacity to manage their health and wellbeing more effectively.

In 2012, the Nunyara Wellbeing Centre Inc. changed their name to the Nunyara Aboriginal Health Service.
