Learning about the Traditional Owners

At this weeks meeting Graeme and Jenny came along from the Dandenong and District Aborigines Co-operative Limited which also incorporates the Bunurong Health Service.

The organisation provides programs and services to meet the needs of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

A wide range of health care is provided as well as a variety of community programs to promote well-being and social engagement.

All services have a strong cultural component.

During the talk we got a better understanding of the difficulties of ‘Closing the Gap’ between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the rest of Australia.
