Based in Southern NSW and completely not-for-profit, CareSouth offers help in a number of ways - through Aunties & Uncles, Brighter Futures, Foster Care, Specialist Youth Support Services, Residential Care, Disability Services and Family Connections. CareSouth's vision is to create a positive future for children, young people, individuals, families and communities, providing opportunities in which people can enhance their quality of life. We're there EVERYDAY.

As a local community based organisation with a big heart, we are bold, determined and innovative. We started in 1992 having seen a great need in the Shoalhaven for a dedicated care organisation. We've grown a lot since then and have offices across the Illawarra, South Coast, Southern Tablelands and Western NSW.

We encourage you to open your mind to the possibilities and hope you find our website useful.
