About us

Share & Care Community Services Group Incorporated

We are a Not For Profit Organisation that sponsors Health, Welfare & Children's Services throughout the communities in regional Western Australia.

About Share and Care

Founded in 1975 by a concerned group of community members in the town of Northam, the Organisation today has grown to provide 23 various services, and covers 250,000 square kilometres of the Coastal, Wheatbelt and Upper Great Southern areas.

Our thanks to Lotterywest, the State and Commonwealth Government who fund the 23 various programs.

Special mention must be made of Lotterywest, who have supported the Organisation since its inception. Without their support, we would struggle constantly to maintain our premises and the Parent Body.

Thanks also to our Corporate Sponsor: Northam Huyundai who sponsor the Administration vehicle annually.
