Support Services: Food, Clothing and Accommodation
As Canberra’s largest not for profit organisation, we provide a range of community services to support the vulnerable, disadvantaged and at-risk individuals and families in the community. This includes offering support for food, clothing, accommodation (homelessness support), and other critical services such as crisis support and emergency relief to those who are in need.
Lifestyles Services: Seniors, Disability and Transport
As a community organisation, we offer interesting, engaging and interactive activities and programs for seniors across Canberra and at our seniors’ centres.
As a disability service provider and an NDIS provider, we pursue a service culture that focuses on upholding human rights and fostering the well-being, inclusion, safety and quality of life of people with disability. We offer a host of services, programs and activities as part of our disability services.
Our community transport service is a lifeline for many people. It assists clients to have continued independence and confidence by transporting them to medical and para-medical appointments, social and community activities, shopping centres or to visit loved ones in residential care.
We run a host of community activities and events, both at our Tuggeranong and Gungahlin community centres and in the broader Canberra community. Our community development team leads these initiatives while fostering broader relationships in the community and enabling capacity building with asset-based community development. We also support new and emerging communities such as Denman Prospect.
Our registered, independent secondary school, Galilee School, supports young people for whom the mainstream schooling environment struggles to deliver positive learning outcomes. We offer special assistance schooling for Years 7-10 and have expanded to Year 11 and 12.
