OUR ORGANISATION

“Employed by Community to work for community… caring is what we do, sharing is who we are”


Under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer, Jacki Turfrey (right) and our Executive Team, more than 270 staff provide services to our clients from three locations in Mildura, Swan Hill and Kerang.

More than half of the workforce at MDAS is of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background, and we remain committed to providing a resilient workforce with high Aboriginal employment and demonstrated cultural competency for non-Aboriginal employees. 

Our LORE
Our LORE governs our people for all our existence and informs our work with communities, families and individuals.
 
LAND, within our cultural lands we will have a place to heal and draw strength. As our Ancestors before us we need to ensure we continue to take care of our lands. 

ORAL, our history is an oral tradition, we have passed down generation to generation by song-lines, language, customs and ceremonies through story-telling. 

RESPECT, is the underpinning value of our people, we show respect for country, our Elders, our cultural practices and others’ cultural practices, our animals and our Dreaming. 

ELDERS, are our wisdom holders, our story tellers, our links to our culture and our families, our Elders provide the cultural knowledge and spiritual guidance that we all need.
