In June 2002, as part of the development of a business plan prepared by Mandala Consulting Services Pty Ltd in conjunction with the directors and staff of DDACL, the organisational vision statement was stated to be:
The Dandenong and District Aborigines Co-operative Ltd will strive for excellence in the provision of professional services to meet the needs of our community.
Dandenong and District Aborigines Co-operative Ltd (DDACL) provides programs and services to meet the needs of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We provide a wide range of health care through our Bunurong Health Service as well as a variety of community programs to promote wellbeing and social engagement.
All of our services have a strong cultural component and we strive to provide a supportive, open and culturally safe environment for Aboriginal people.
