Message from the Executive Director
I would like you to join in our work either through membership, volunteerism or by donation. We live in challenging times with increasing levels of disadvantage being experienced by more and more citizens. The organisation is not an apologist for inappropriate behaviours but is dedicated to principles of social justice that nurture a safe and caring society. I invite you on a tour though our virtual library which provides an historical synopsis of our work within the community over the past two decades.
