Community Engagement and Career Expos

As a member based national organisation, IAHA strives to led transformation in the allied health sector focusing on building a culturally safe and responsive workforce and services that meet the health and wellbeing needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families and communities. This includes not only the health sector but the disability, aged care, education and community services sectors.

Working with and in partnership with communities and local organisations is a critical factor in delivering on IAHA priorities, therefore engagement through attendance at community events and celebrations, career expos, and visiting health and other organisations and services to promote allied health careers with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities is central to achieving success.

IAHA members and staff work in partnership with stakeholders and communities to provide information, undertake interactive sessions, share stories and host forums or gatherings to build the profile of allied health and IAHA and contribute to workforce planning and development in building the allied health workforce and services in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

We need you to let us know about those events and invite us to run a stall.

So if you’re having a big mob come to your event and you’d like us to come and promote careers in allied health, all you need to do is let us know at least 4 weeks before your event by filling out our Community Event form.

We will try to attend all community events to which we are invited but there may be times when it is not possible.

If you have any questions or require further information please read our frequently asked questions, read the Representing IAHA Fact Sheet and/or contact us.
