Stepan Kerkyasharian AO Harmony Award – Organisation: CORE Community Services

CORE Community Services Ltd (CORE CS) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been operating in South West Sydney for nearly 40 years. The organisation runs a wide range of services, activities and programs and is known for its work with diverse communities. Its service deliverables include Children’s Services, Youth Services, Multicultural Communities, Aged and Disability Care and Community Engagement. CORE CS currently operates from eleven sites across South Western Sydney that have provided support services to over 50,000 South West Sydney community members including over 4,000 refugees and humanitarian entrants largely from Iraq and Syria in the Fairfield LGA. There has been a 300% increase to the annual refugee settlement in the area.

Core CS is also a driving force behind the Fairfield City Settlement Action Plan, a city-wide plan aimed at providing the best possible settlement outcomes for all refugee and vulnerable migrant groups in and around the Fairfield LGA. CORE CS’ diverse range of services allows the organisation to provide a wraparound service to families engaged in its services.
