Join the Everybody’s Home Campaign

The Everybody’s Home campaign is calling on our Government to fix Australia’s broken housing system and make sure everyone has a place to call home.

This initiative aims to get all Australians involved in a campaign that will see everyone working together to call on our government to implement the solutions needed to ensure everyone has a home.

If you believe that everyone deserves a better, fairer housing system, please join us and pledge to join the Everybody’s Home campaign!

International Women’s Day

Yesterday, the women in our office came together over brunch to celebrate International Women’s Day!

As this year’s National NAIDOC Week theme is ‘Because of her, we can!’, it’s more important than ever that we recognise the achievements of strong women in our community and offer support to those who need it.

Through our community programs and services, Bungree Aboriginal Association offers assistance to vulnerable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women on the Central Coast.
