Darumbal Community Youth Service Inc. was granted permission in 1994 by the traditional custodians of the land, the Darumbal people, the use of the Darumbal name for the service. We further recognise and respect the Darumbal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which the service operates and also respect the traditional custodians in surrounding areas where we may operate programs and services.
