Our Aim

Burringilly aims to be an effective service provider on behalf of Older and Disabled Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and their carers, achieving for them an enriched quality of life that improves their culturual values, heritage beliefs and thus their DREAMING (PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE).

HACC is a jointly funded Australian Government and state/territory government program.

It provides funding for basic maintenance and support for people who live at home and whose capacity for independent living is at risk, or who are at risk of premature or inappropriate admission to long term residential care.
