About Us

FISH develops & Runs a range of initiatives to meet our Vision for all Aboriginal people to be confident, connected, and healthy

Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health​

Healthy spirit, heart, mind & body. Healthy families, community & land

FISH was originally established to address the severe housing crisis in Indigenous communities throughout Australia.

Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a living spiritual, cultural, familial and social connection with country, FISH now seeks to bring healing to the spirit, heart, mind, body and land to help create healthy people and communities.

We aim to develop sustainable health through co-designed community based programmes providing learning experiences in life skills, personal development, and creative initiatives.

FISH aims to provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to share their wisdom and insights to the broader community to teach people how to connect and care for each other and for country, whilst closing the gap and breaking generational cycles of poverty, trauma, and engagement with the justice system.

‘TEACH A PERSON TO FISH’

Acknowledgement of Country

FISH acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first peoples of our nation and as the traditional owners of the land. FISH acknowledges that there were hundreds of different Aboriginal groups within Australia prior to European settlement, each with their own distinctive language, customs and lore. Under Aboriginal lore and custom, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have cultural responsibilities and rights in relation to the land of which they are the traditional owners. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a living spiritual, cultural, familial and social connection with the land. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have made, are making, and will continue to make, a significant and unique contribution to the heritage, cultural identity, community and economy of Australia.

Our Vision

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are confident, connected, healthy, have equal opportunities with education, training, employment and life choices and are valued as positive, and healing contributors who lead others to care for each other and for Country.

Our Mission

To improve the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and break intergenerational cycles of trauma, poverty and engagement in the justice system.
