CareSouth is proud to be the 2016 Business of the Year at the Shoalhaven Business Awards where we were also awarded the Employer of Choice and Excellence in Community Service awards.
The awards highlight the professionalism, innovation and quality work our not-for-profit organisation does in the community sector and our commitment to developing initiatives to compliment the great work our committed staff do everyday to help others.
At CareSouth we work with people most in need. Our staff are dedicated professionals from diverse backgrounds who have a unique skill set – from direct care workers to accountants and psychologists to IT specialists.
The Business of the Year award is recognition of the importance of investing in our future – the vulnerable children and young people who are supported by our team of dedicated employees.
It has been an exciting year for accolades at CareSouth, with the organisation’s Deniliquin manager Pru McManus named as the Business Leader of the Year at the Deniliquin Business Awards in July.
CareSouth was also named as a finalist in the Illawarra Business Chamber Awards for Employer of Choice and Excellence in Business Ethics.
