Cindy Sambo: A caring nature

Mar 8, 2023

Caring isn’t just part of Cindy Sambo’s job. It’s her nature.

Cindy Sambo Hs Long before she became the Coordinator of our Integrated Team Care (ITC) program in Kalgoorlie, Cindy Sambo was caring for people.

She has worked in aged care, she has worked with hospitals and she is a qualified Aboriginal Health Practitioner. Caring for her community is what she does.

Integrated Team Care

Right now, her work involves enabling Aboriginal people with chronic conditions to access the support and services they need to improve their health.

“If an Aboriginal person needs a walker, or a wheelchair, or a CPAP machine, we work to fill that gap,” she explains.

A big part of Cindy’s role is to let the community know about the ITC program, and to let local GPs know how the program can support their patients.

“It is very satisfying to be able to help people – some people don’t even know these services are here, and they are walking around with old walking sticks. They do not know they can access to this service,” she says.

Spreading the word

While she’s based in Kalgoorlie, spreading the word about the ITC program takes Cindy Sambo all over the Goldfields.

“I’m out in the community a lot, attending events, making our presence known,” she says.

“Working with the community is my passion, I love enabling and empowering Aboriginal people to take care of their own health.

“I come from a family which has had its own complicated family health issues, so I become interested in health and then that became my passion.”

“I will help everybody, anybody, if they need it. It’s my job, it’s what I do.”


HOPE Kalgoorlie provides programs services and interventions to support individuals, families and communities to address chronic health conditions, mental health, alcohol and other drug use.
