Ethnic Community Services Co-operative

Founded in 1978 and registered as a Non-Trading Non-Share Co-operative under the Cooperatives Act 1992 (NSW) in 1979, Ethnic Community Services Co-operative (ECSC) is a not for profit organisation with an extensive history of grass roots engagement with CALD communities. Ethnic Community Services Co-operative Limited is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

We acknowledge the Cadigal Wangal Clans of the Eora nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of Aboriginal people and pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.

We provide targeted services across Sydney and NSW to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged group of people from CALD backgrounds, including children and families, people with disabilities and their carers and the older persons living at home and their carers.

Our work also focuses on building the capacity of mainstream service providers to facilitate culturally appropriate service delivery and promoting the rights of CALD people through systemic advocacy and input into local, state, national and international policy.

We value the knowledge, energy and passion of our workers and volunteers and aim to provide a workplace where people can learn, innovate and grow.



At the 2015 ECSC’s AGM we asked our members what does social inclusion mean to them. The above image includes their responses.
