CCA is a non-denominational not for profit community service organisation that has been delivering services for over 50 years.
CCA was established in 1965 to “provide help to the needy through a trained social worker and voluntary helpers” in an area “two miles around Eastwood Methodist Church”. A legacy of £1300 given to the Church to support such work was used to launch CCA. Within 18 months CCA was receiving support from every denomination in the Eastwood-Epping district. From these small beginnings, CCA has now grown into a multi-service organisation providing community services to multiple local government areas in Sydney. We assist people to access appropriate services and networks through personalised and timely support. CCA enables community members to focus on achieving outcomes that are important and meaningful to them.
We are problem solvers and game changers combating against poverty, violence, discrimination, and inequality. United we work for the health, wellbeing, education, safety, and financial stability of every person in our community.
Every Australian community, the families, children, young people and the elderly, thrives.
