Founded in 1979, Ethnic Community Services Co-operative (ECSC) is a not-for-profit organisation. We were established to respond to and work with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities across NSW to support their needs, and we continue to do so as a not-for-profit charity organisation. ECSC works to foster equity of access and social justice across the aged care, early childhood and disability sectors through various programs and provide services to CALD people, including early childhood age to 65 and over that are designed to support their various needs in different stages of life. While our primary target groups are people from CALD backgrounds who face many barriers in accessing services, we continue to provide services to all Australians who may seek our services. We also assist and support the service providers across the sectors to make their services culturally appropriate, so that access to service is equitable to CALD people.
