About Us

Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services (IDS) is an Aboriginal owned registered company, based in Townsville, 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.

Our Team

GRAHAM PATTEL

I’m Graham and I am from the Bidjara Nation. I grew up in Winton. My father was a Drover and my mother was a busy mother of nine children. After I left school I travelled around Australia and lived in many remote communities.

I am proud of my 3 children and 10 grandchildren who all live in Sydney. I have two brothers and five sisters who are married with children of their own.

I was an active community member in Brisbane during 70s, 80s, to 2000, involved in many community activities and Kambu Rugby League Football Club. I moved to Townsville to be close to my family and to take up new challenges.In my spare time I like to watch football and support my grandchildren as they make their way into adulthood.

MARGARET HURE

My name is Margaret and I belong to the Wakka Wakka and Wulli Wulli people. I grew up in Mount Isa and most of my childhood years were spent with my Mother’s sister. Travelling between the two I would go to school and go home to Mum on holidays. I have three children. Natalie and Dallas work in Indigenous Health and Shireen is a stay at home grandmother looking after her grandsons, one of whom has a disability.

I lived in Brisbane for about 10 years before moving back to Bundaberg where most of my extended family live. We are a close-knit family with special relationships with each other on many different levels. Family is the very core of the home.ment work with a focus on disability.
