It is our VISION that SARRAH will be the recognised peak body representing and influencing reform in rural and remote allied health, with a supported and dynamic member network.

"Advocacy, support and professional development for rural and remote allied health professionals."


The articulation of the fundamental values that distinguish SARRAH as an organisation is important to underpin the achievement of SARRAH’s primary objective and the prioritisation of organisational activities and resource allocation.

  • Respect.

SARRAH provides individual rural and remote allied health professionals with opportunities to inform and influence by contributing 'our' perspective to policy and planning processes that govern service delivery to rural and remote communities with the ultimate goal being enhanced community health outcomes. 'Our' perspective is demonstrated by qualities such as:

  • Valuing the individual grass roots allied health professional
  • Consultation
  • Achievement orientation
  • Connectedness to community
  • Can-do attitude.
