We have five fixed clinics in NSW (in AshfieldFairfieldPenrithNewcastle and Dubbo) and use innovative partnerships to deliver services in other key locations across the state with more 28,000 client visits annually.

We also operate Talkline 1300 658 886, a confidential telephone and email information and referral service, connecting our expertise to communities across NSW.

We provide information and health promotion activities, as well as education and training for doctors, nurses, teachers and other health, education and welfare professionals.

As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we recognise that every body in every family should have access to high quality clinical services and information.

Our services are targeted to marginalised communities, including people from culturally and linguistically diverse and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, refugees, people with disability,  young people, people from rural and remote communities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities.
