CORE Community Services was founded in 1978 when Ulla Bartels, a volunteer with the Fairfield Neighbourhood Centre, started running English classes in Cabramatta for refugees from Indo-China. Soon the needs of the community surpassed her capacity and assistance was received from the Carramar Activity Group. In 1979, a group of volunteers formed a management committee and developed a constitution so they could apply for government funds. The group called itself the South-East Asian Community Assistance Centre (SEACA).

For us volunteers play a significant role in our organisation and community. We recognise our volunteers who have contributed during this time to support the community we serve. Thank you for providing ongoing support and believing in our cause.

The opportunities are endless when you begin volunteering with CORE Community Services
