Wurli-Wurlinjang is an Aboriginal community controlled organisation. We are governed by a Board of Directors elected by our members who live in Katherine and the surrounding community living areas we service.
We ensure good governance and take responsibility for our organisation
We build respect for our elders and our culture
We empower people to take responsibility for their health
Wurli provides clinical services from 3 different locations in Katherine:
Main Clinic at 25 Third Street
Gudbinji Chronic Disease Clinic at 6 Kintore Street
The unit covers four programs. All programs start from a position of cultural sensitivity and respect to ensure community members experiencing psychological distress, mental illness and life challenges have good access to services
There are numerous role types at Wurli, including health professionals, allied health workers, counsellors, administration staff, transport officers and community liaison staff. Each and every job is important and well supported.
People of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent should be aware that the Wurli-Wurlinjang Health Service website may contain images and names of people who have died.
Wurli acknowledges the traditional owners of the country on which we work and live and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures and to elders both past and present.
