Bungree approved as an NDIS Proivder
We are thrilled to announce that Bungree Aboriginal Association has been approved under the new NSW Quality and Safeguards Commission as an NDIS Provider.
Following the formation of the new Commission, which aims to provide national consistency across NDIS services and regulate NDIS providers, Bungree was required to re-register as a provider. This process required a number of internal changes and amendments. We would like to sincerely thank our Disability Services team for their commitment, assistance, dedication and perseverance in compiling all new information and implementing the required changes and amendments.
This is a terrific outcome for Bungree and our NDIS program and we look forward to continuing to serve members of the local community who require a range of disability supports.
