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.
A cluster fundraiser of a Harness Racing Night is planned for the 12th May.
