Beyond the pristine beaches, rivers and national parks, the Sutherland Shire ranks among the top regions in N.S.W. on the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage, meaning that compared to the rest of the state, residents of the Sutherland Shire are sufficiently privileged in the areas of income, education, and employment. Residents of the Shire are typically affluent, middle to upper class, and enjoy access to above average money, education, healthcare, employment, transport, and physical surroundings. However, these facts fail to tell the whole story. Amidst the perceived wealth and privilege of our region, there are tragic stories of incredible suffering and injustice. Among us are neighbours who suffer daily from the effects of homelessness, domestic violence, family breakdown, mental health, and other socio-economic disadvantages in our community.

Our Purpose

In a community where privilege often covers the reality of vast pain, Kingsway Care exists to serve the social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of the Sutherland Shire and surrounding regions. 

Our Strategic Directives

To practically love vulnerable individuals and families through housing, personal development programs, and supplying life's basics. 

We are achieving this by: 

  1. Promoting and facilitating social and individual welfare (PROGRAMS).
  2. Delivering services using a local community neighbourhood model (ENGAGEMENT). 
  3. Promoting public awareness and involvement in social justice matters (ADVOCACY).
  4. Collaborating with social welfare and community organisations to maximise positive outcomes for people in need (COLLABORATION).
  5. Building a sustainable, scalable organisation that applies best-practice principles in its operations (ORGANISATION DEVELOPMENT).

Our Values

Our values are built on our christian worldview that is founded on unconditional love for all people. Our experience tells us that consistent and positive outcomes arise as we embody these three values:

  1. Prayer; Everything we do begins in prayer. We trust God for vision, direction, and provision.
  2. Story; We share stories of transformational love and hope.
  3. Justice; We fight for the marginalised and seek to build a better world.

If who we are and what we're about resonates with you, we'd love to hear from you.
