Mission Statement

Richmond Community Services Incorporated (RCSI) will work together with local residents and the community to identify needs and improve services to the Hawkesbury

Values of the Organisation

Respect – RCSI acknowledges the Traditional Dharug Owners of this land and commits to ensure that all services to all residents will be provided in an environment that fosters respect and dignity to all people

Co-operation – RCSI will work with local residents and services to identify both the individual and collective needs of the Hawkesbury community

Accessibility – As a centre that celebrates diversity in the community, RCSI is committed to providing services to all people regardless of race, age, gender, disability or sexuality

Individual Advocacy – RCSI will endeavour to make information available to ensure that individuals do not suffer through lack of knowledge of their rights and responsibilities or of the services available to them or through an inability to express their needs effectively

Social Advocacy – RCSI will, in partnership with the community, exercise a responsible influence on the development of social policies and services, both locally and nationally

 

What is a Neighbourhood Centre?

Richmond Neighbourhood Centre was built on Dharug land by Hawkesbury City Council for use by the local community. The Management Committee of Richmond Community Services Inc, (which is made up of local and interested people who are also financial members), is responsible for the governance of the centre and the employment of a manager of the staff to assist in providing services to the local community. Below is a quick look at some of what happens from the centre:
