LINCS Chairmans Message
LINCS, or to give it its full name, Living IN CommunitieS is an organization of which we are very proud. It has a wonderful record of achievement in the Hawkesbury Community, spanning almost 20 years. It has grown from the humblest of beginnings to a status which has more recently earned it funding from the Commonwealth Government. LINCS is an organization embodying the highest principles of community service. It comprises a tertiary qualified Program Co Ordinator, trained community volunteers and is managed by a dedicated group of volunteer members who form our Management Committee.
As you explore our website you will learn something of the scope of our activities and of our achievements. We are most grateful for administrative support from St John of God Mission Services and our current grant from the Commonwealth. If it were not for support from both of these partners, LINCS may not be providing the services that we are providing today. The current funding period ends on the 30th June 2017. As such, the most significant challenge facing LINCS right now is to develop sustainable partnerships and a sustainable funding model, to enable our community to continue to benefit from our range of family support programs
LINCS is an integral part of the Hawkesbury Community. I am very privileged to have been elected Chairman at the 2016 Annual General Meeting. Volunteer organizations are cornerstones of our community and are always looking for more support. Although we have some Commonwealth funding this only just covers our barest needs so we continue to fundraise and we continue to reach out for volunteers who will help us achieve our mission. Thank you for visiting our website.
