Communities for Children Bendigo acknowledges the Dja Dja Wurrung and Tungurung people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We pay our respects to leaders and elders past, present and emerging. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and hope that we may walk forward together in harmony.
