Board & Governance

Graham Pattel


I am a descendant of the Bidjara people.

In 2018, I and Margaret Decided to start a NDIS Company to provide a service for our First Nations Peoples. We identified that NDIS had not had a cultural service that would meet our peoples.

We started off in Bundaberg Queensland, for the first two years and we decided to move out operations Bundaberg did not support us with clients to Townsville where we felt there were more opportunities.

Townsville and surrounding district have a huge service area, of First Nations Peoples. According to the last bureau of statistics, there are 26,000 people who identify as Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander with a disability.

We formed a company Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services. Its Margaret’s country situated in the Burnett District. Taking in Mundubbera, Theodore and encompasses the Cracow Gold mine.

I am an active community member of the Townsville Community for 20years. Have been involved in many projects and been on many boards. I am excited to be a partner of Wulli Wulli and looking forwards providing a service to our people and our community.

Many of our First Nations have cultural needs as well disability needs. Our people are looking for a services provider who meets their needs, and understands our issues.

Firstly, thank you for visiting the website of my company.

Wulli Wulli is named after my Father Alick Little who was a well-known local in the area. My father was the first man to strike Gold on a prospectors gold mine and was given a bag of flour and sugar for his findings. 

This being a childhood memory of mine and Aboriginal people country wide struggle for self-determination and fundamentals of life.  This is why Wulli Wulli Indigenous Disability Services was created.

I was a mother of 3 children once my son Dallas (the CEO) was of school age I entered the workforce working in AMS as a cleaner for many years. I then started in the youth justice legal space working as a field officer in local Legal Aide.

I then commenced a training program as a Youth Detention Worker and continued to work within the Justice System for over 22 years.  I have during that time undertaken many areas of further studies and achievements.

I was a Board of Director on the Wide Bay Health Advisory Committee and a member of the Townsville Aboriginal and Islander Elders Committee.  I am a traditional owner of Wulli Wulli Nation of peoples and continue to be active on this.

My qualifications include – Mental Health, Community Service, Case Management, Youth Justice and most recently completed my qualifications to become a Qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker.

I continue to be actively involved in the continuation and establishment of the company, I am passionate about this and believe that we can make a difference in the disability landscape.  I have my grand-daughter on staff providing Business Development skills, my partner Graham is also a fellow Director and my son is the CEO.

I have great grandchildren that I wish to create a better experience as Aboriginal people and for my great grandchildren to be proud that I have left them a legacy of change for our people.


Wulli Wulli acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
