Cultural Group

Eurobodalla services has linked the Moruya Cultural Group, which was started by Uncle Tom Butler and Angelo DiBella, a Disability Support Worker at The Disability Trust.

Uncle Tom shares his knowledge and wisdom about Indigenous art, sign language, cultural walks, fishing, bush foods and medicine, as well as the history of the area, combined with literacy and numeracy skills building. 

This Cultural Group is a men’s program that fosters relationships between the group and the community, such as the local First Nations commercial fishing team, who invited the group to join in and crate a haul of fish.

The Disability Trust is very proud of Uncle Tom, who won an NDS Excellence in Indigenous Programs award, recognising his outstanding work in promoting the needs of First Nations people with disability, and building their capacity to exercise choice and control.

 NDIS funding is a requirement to join this program.

Experiences include:

  • Learning about First Nations culture 
  • Improved health and wellbeing
  • Make new social connections in a supportive setting
  • Connecting with local community
  • Positive relationships
