Redfern AMS was established in 1971 and became the template all future community-controlled Aboriginal health services were based on.

Now, 45 years later, it has plans to enter a partnership with Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council to deliver drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

See OurMob’s video retrospective below, acknowledging the past and looking ahead to the future.
