Southside Community Services Inc is a community based not-for-profit, non-government organisation incorporated as an association in 1987. The organisation manages and delivers a range of community services including community development, family support services, training services, children’s services and aged care and disability services. Services are designed to meet community needs.
The main objectives of Southside Community Services are the relief of poverty, distress, sickness, suffering and destitution in the ACT community.
The Organisation is managed by a volunteer BOARD OF MANAGEMENT, elected annually by members. The Board consists of community and staff representatives. It meets monthly and is responsible for the total management of the Association. The Board delegates the day to day running of the Association to the Executive Director. Information about membership can be obtained from the main office.
The Board strives towards providing leadership by focusing of the relevance of programs, the Association’s strategic position and on setting the tone and content of broad policy.
