Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services

Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services (IDS) is an Aboriginal owned registered company, based in Bundaberg, which provides high quality, culturally secure disability services to Indigenous communities in the Townsville region. We assist Indigenous clients to understand and prepare them for NDIS Services. The low participation rate of Indigenous people in disability support services contributes to the lack of culturally appropriate services.

In the longer term Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services plans to partner with other NDIS service providers to help improve their understanding and awareness of Indigenous cultures and build professional skills to deliver quality services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. Wulli Wulli IDS will enhance rapport between NDIS providers and Indigenous clients to develop culturally secure practices and improve client participation. This will be achieved by developing training materials and conducting organisational development initiatives for other service providers.

Mission

Our mission is to deliver a culturally secure service to meet the expectations of our clients, their families and carers and assist them to achieve their potential through enhanced confidence and wellbeing.

Values

Wulli Wulli IDS is committed to growing and adapting its services to meet the needs of Indigenous communities, connecting clients, carers and communities with best practice NDIS services. Our core values are to provide services which are:

  • customer focussed;
  • culturally secure;
  • relationship-based;
  • family inclusive;
  • based on an understanding of language and literacy issues;
