Sydney Community Services
Our Mission: To enhance the quality of life of all people living in the community by providing a range of health and community services.
Sydney Community Services was established on 01 July 2017 – however our history runs deep in the Community. Sydney Community Services was formed from a merger between Lane Cove and North Side Community Services (LCNSCS) and Hunters Hill Ryde Community Services (HHRCS).
RESPECT – We respect people’s abilities, qualities and achievements through providing relevant non-judgemental service.
EMPOWERMENT – We empower people through inspiration, example, encouragement, adventure and creativity.
DIVERSITY – We celebrate people’s diversity and uniqueness.
INCLUSION – We include people in decisions and actions and are sensitive to their individual needs.
QUALITY- We strive to meet or exceed people’s expectations.
SCS believes in:
Assisting those in need to maintain and improve their quality of life
Responding to the changing needs of the community
Encouraging self esteem, self respect and independence
Fostering community interest and involvement in the objectives and activities of the organisation
Providing services and information to the community and referring community members to other appropriate service providers
Cooperating with other relevant organisations in the provision of community support services
SCS cannot exist without the dedicated contribution of its 200 volunteers who work locally to support the vulnerable by connecting the elderly, the frail and people with disability to the community.
Clients can be referred to SCS through My Aged Care, local hospitals, doctors, other service providers, family or themselves. To find out more about accessing services or volunteering with SCS, contact our office on 02 9427 6425 or email [email protected]
