Our history

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.

1973

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS) Brisbane formally commenced operations at a converted shop front in Red Hill.

1976

We moved to South Brisbane where our service continued to expand.

1981

The then Council of Management sought new premises to accommodate the many programs that the service was now providing.

1985

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.

2006

We moved to temporary premises in West End as a result of plans for the construction of a major tunnel in Brisbane.

2008

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.

2009

We completed major capital works and commenced expanded operations at Woolloongabba, Woodridge, Northgate and Acacia Ridge.

2021

We have now grown to be one of the largest Indigenous community organisations in Queensland, and proudly remain community-owned and managed.
