  • We support and affirm the rights of all people and seeks to challenge and eliminate all forms of discrimination and harassment.
  • We are dedicated to enhancing and sustaining the health and well-being of our residents, clients, staff and volunteers by creating inviting, open and inclusive spaces.
  • We seek to build genuine caring communities where people can be free to be themselves without fear of judgement and where each person’s uniqueness and diversity is respected.
  • We are committed to an ongoing process of raising awareness of diversity through the provision of information and education.

Your Spiritual Wellbeing

Spirituality is something common to all humanity. Deep within all of us is a need to find meaning and purpose to explore the deeper questions of life.

We focus on the whole person and seek to meet not just physical care needs but emotional and spiritual needs. The spiritual care will be provided with Christ-like love, respect and dignity, in order to assist each individual's life journey through transitions encompassing grief and joy, loss and gain, the search for meaning, and the maintaining of fruitful relationships with self, others and the transcendent 'other'.

Almost one third of the population of NSW and the ACT were born overseas. While some members of CALD communities are strongly linked into local networks and able to easily access culturally specific supports, many are not.

Members of smaller cultural groups, who are not represented by existing ethno-specific services, may face particular difficulties in locating appropriate support.
