Decades of experience living and working in rural and remote communities to successfully support local communities to establish and operate sustainable health and social care services.

HEALTHACCESS COMMUNITY CARE

HealthAccess Community Care is a social enterprise of the Healthy Communities Foundation Australia.  HealthAccess Community Care supports access to health, social and medical services in rural, remote and disadvantaged communities.  

The Foundation has worked with 17 communities over the last 20 years servicing a population catchment of more than 300,000 people to support them to run and grow local health and social care services, and recruit doctors and nurses, in some of the most difficult to service locations.  Today, every one of those communities continues to have on-site access to GPs and care as a result of the work of the Foundation with the community.

Our goal as an organisation is to provide the mentoring, backend support and expertise to build local community capacity to operate community-led health services, and then hand over responsibility back to the local community.  

We have helped numerous communities to plan for new models of care that are sustainable, effective and community-led.  

 

HealthAccess Community Care provides the community with access to backend expertise and management to fill gaps in local capacity.  We see our job as helping the community build capacity locally, and over time transfer full management to community-control.
