Free, easy to use directory
The community services directory is a comprehensive listing of local emergency services, government agencies, public facilities, not-for-profit organisations and many other groups.
Parents, caregivers, residents, visitors and anyone with an interest in the local area can access the site for free, which also features contact details and further information about organisations and services across Sydney.
Users can search by suburb or organisation category.
A wide variety of groups are included in the directory, including those working in accommodation and aged care, conservation and the environment, sport and recreation as well as volunteering and youth services.
It is regularly updated and maintained.
The directory is part of LINCS (Local Information Network for Community Services), which is an online partnership of more than 30 local councils, including the City of Sydney, NSW Government departments and community organisations.
