Inala CHC celebrates diversity to #InspireInclusion

26 March 2024

This International Women’s Day, staff at the Inala Community Health Centre (CHC) Alcohol and Drug Service (ADS) and Needle Syringe Program (NSP) joined forces to #InspireInclusion with a March 8 celebration that was testament to the team’s supportive culture and comradery.
In honour of the vibrant diversity of women working at Inala CHC, the ADS hosted a special morning tea complete with a selection of lucky door prizes, sweet and savoury treats and team trivia.
With a reputation as one of Metro South’s most community-focused and diverse teams, the clinic’s supportive culture extends beyond team-building activities.
Working in partnership with the Addiction Services Preventative Team (ASPT) and local NGOs, the service runs a number of regular consumer-centred initiatives, going above and beyond to build networks between their consumers and targeted support services.
“We seek out those community groups and support services that we can link our consumers to, who may have a specific need or cultural requirement, for a better outcome,” said NSP Coordinator Suzie Shearman.
“We take a holistic approach to supporting our consumers, and this builds a relationship that allows consumers to see and feel that their addiction is not all we care about.”
From coordinating culturally considered care packages at Christmas time, to donating toiletries and personal care items for distribution through ADS/NPS to consumers in need, Inala CHC is leading by example and proving that a bit of community spirit goes a long way.
