Our year, our work
Each year we prepare a series of publications highlighting our achievements.
We are proud to present Our Community, Our Work, Our Stories, our 2019-20 Annual Report.
We believe it provides valuable insights into the key issues affecting our community in Brisbane and Logan and how we are working towards reinstating the wellbeing of our people – person by person, family by family, generation by generation.
Take a look at what we have achieved over the past 12 months.

ATSICHS Brisbane was formed by community members and concerned general practitioners as a small volunteer group in the early 1970s. Opening its doors in a shopfront at Red Hill we provided primary health care to the Indigenous community around Spring Hill.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS) Brisbane formally commenced operations at a converted shop front in Red Hill.
We moved to South Brisbane where our service continued to expand.
The then Council of Management sought new premises to accommodate the many programs that the service was now providing.
We moved to 10 Hubert Street in Woolloongabba, a location that was historically close to where large numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples lived in Brisbane.
We moved to temporary premises in West End as a result of plans for the construction of a major tunnel in Brisbane.
We formally changed our name to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS), in recognition of the two distinct cultural sub-groups that make up the Indigenous population of Brisbane.
We completed major capital works and commenced expanded operations at Woolloongabba, Woodridge, Northgate and Acacia Ridge.
We have now grown to be one of the largest Indigenous community organisations in Queensland, and proudly remain community-owned and managed.
