Southcare is a community not for profit organisation based in Manning, South Perth.
We started in 1982 as a small but determined group of some 20 volunteers helping people in need in the local area with emergency assistance of baby and food hampers.
Today, we provide a diverse range of Government and Community funded services in aged care, Aboriginal family support, financial counselling, emergency relief, social connection, community amenity and professional leadership training. As well we partner with other community organisations, foundations and universities for research, resource sharing and collaboration to build the capacity of the aged care and community not for profit sector.
In the spirit of our tradition, volunteers have a special place in our organisation, assisting us to provide valuable services in the community alongside our staff; – and we still do hampers at Christmas to brighten this time for people in need; and also as a special tribute to the way it all began for us over 30 years ago.
