Sarah Corrigan

Aboriginal Health Practitioner

Sarah is an Aboriginal Health Practitioner and owner of the Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective and will be working at The Base on Tuesday mornings and all day Wednesdays.

Sarah established the Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective as a full-time business in February 2020 in beautiful Awabakal
Country. Sarah is a proud Darkinjung woman from the Central Coast with over 15 years’ experience working in
Aboriginal health, education and community programs across several organisations including NSW Health and the
University of Newcastle.
Sarah is an active community member involved in several local school NAIDOC committees and was previously President
of Gibalee Student Advisory Council. Sarah is registered with AHPRA as an Aboriginal Health Practitioner with
qualifications in Allied Health, Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs, Training and Assessing and Indigenous trauma
recovery and practice.
Sarah was awarded a scholarship to attend the 2019 Inaugural Indigenous Women in Leadership Symposium to support
the growth of Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective as an emerging consultancy business. The following quote “If you can’t
see it be it” from a female Indigenous mining operations manager and executive inspired Sarah to consider the current
need in business for culturally safe Aboriginal mental health services.
At the time, Sarah (employed in public health) was finding it very difficult to refer Indigenous clients to accessible,
affordable, culturally competent, holistic Indigenous mental health care. Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective expanded
from consultancy services to provision of Aboriginal mental health and wellbeing services in 2020 with services being
bulk-billed or fees charged on a sliding scale.
In 2021 Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective began providing NDIS services in response to the need for culturally competent
and responsive services for Aboriginal NDIS clients with psychosocial disabilities.
Rainbow Crow Cultural Collective continue to deliver in house designed, written and developed training programs. Clients
include Lake Macquarie Council and Cessnock City Council. 90% of our interactive workshop attendees would
recommend our training to others. We also design and deliver customisable community development programs and
cultural supervision for health professionals.
