About KCS

Kogarah Community Services is a vibrant and diverse community organisation delivering services for the purpose of relieving the poverty, distress and disadvantage experienced by people in our community.

A History of

Community

Engagement

KCS is an independent, not-for-profit organisation.  Originally established in the St George area, we now operate across Sydney.  We work in partnership with the local community, enriching and strengthening the community by:

  • Supporting people across all life stages with a range of services for children, youth, families, older people, and people who are vulnerable or disadvantaged.
  • Creating meaningful community engagement through activities, events and volunteering.
  • Working alongside the community to advocate for positive change.

Our

Commitment

KCS believes in:

Acting with integrity– In all our actions and decisions we will be open, honest and fair.

Making a difference – Our top priority is to make a lasting, positive difference in the lives of vulnerable people and those in need.

Valuing everyone – We value and celebrate cultural differences.  Everyone matters and everyone has something positive to contribute.

Working together – The best outcomes are achieved when people work together.

 Inspiring each other – We are energised by bold ideas.  We aim to inspire others to reach their potential and grow in confidence.
