Why do we exist?

The purpose of the Trusts is to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for Bulls and wider district residents. Respectfully networking across a wide range of agencies, community groups, businesses, and residents we share the knowledge of others and the voices of our Bulls community who participate in key planning objectives and outcomes. Bringing together our collective local knowledge, wisdom, and strengths, we shape bright and bold futures for all residents. Our community-led development programme and events brings hope that anything is possible when we work together.


Harnessing potential from within.


By drawing from past lessons, we build connections for future generations, harnessing their strengths, hearing their stories, celebrating our diversity.
