About Us

Bay & Basin Community Resources is an established local organisation, which operates under ‘not for profit’ status. We’ve been serving the Shoalhaven and Illawarra region since 1991, leading the way as a provider of community services and essential programs, projects information and resources.

People and community matter to us, and we’ve built our organisation around that focus. We hope to continue meeting the needs of our community members for years to come, and promoting their health and wellbeing above all.

Our History

Since 1991 Bay & Basin Community Resources (BBCR), a community based ‘not for profit’ organisation has been at the forefront of providing community services across the Shoalhaven/Illawarra.

The purpose of BBCR is to consult with the community to identify the gaps in community services and where possible, establish and support services and programs that will enhance the health and wellbeing of residents.

A voluntary Board has general governance responsibilities and employs a Chief Executive Officer to manage the day-to-day operations of the organisation.

BBCR is working to ensure that the future generations, our children and grandchildren can continue to remain living independently in the comfort of their homes surrounded by the beauty this wonderful area has to offer. BBCR Mission Statement outlines the organisation’s aims and objectives.
