Why Choose BBCR?



Part of what makes BBCR unique is:


Thousands of people have enjoyed and benefited from attending the broad range of programs and activities we have on offer. BBCR has the ability to offer services across the Illawarra region from Helensburgh in the north to Durras Lake in the southern region of the Shoalhaven.

From early intervention, active ageing, carers support programs, paradise cottage for short specialised care, disability services, community development, youth opportunities, after school and vacation care, community radio, men’s shed, host to Job active programs, and volunteering opportunities.

We focus on early intervention, skills development, active ageing and assist people to remain independent, and socially connected to their community.


There is something for everyone, opportunities for employment, training, volunteering, and getting the right service you need to make a difference in your future. If we cannot provide you a service we can support you to access a referral to one of our many partner agencies.

WE offer it all and guarantee that it will be affordable, high quality, friendly service to people of all ages. We have developed a strong trusting and reliable reputation for over 25 years across the Shoalhaven and Illawarra region.

We can offer many solutions and opportunities in meeting community need through our strong partnerships with community members, service organisations, Shoalhaven City Council, all levels of Government and other key stakeholders.


Over 160 workers including volunteers, who are all local community residents, give from their heart to make a difference to others. The feedback we receive from people we work with is that the staff and volunteers are amazing “they are just so caring, sharing and giving of themselves and their time to make us happy” This is the culture we promote at BBCR, we look after our staff and volunteers, we treat them with respect and listen to what they need, this flows through to the families they work with.

BBCR has an excellent staff and volunteer retention record.  Staff are all qualified and experienced in their given professions.  BBCR maintains a comprehensive training calendar and database to ensure currency of Federal Police checks, Working with Children and other compliance checks.

Along with our volunteer Board, CEO and enthusiastic staff plus our wonderful dedicated team of volunteers we have the ability to build social capital and bring communities together.

BBCR is an ASSET to the community, with a strong sense of PRIDE in providing service excellence across all areas of their service delivery.

BBCR offers a “ONE STOP SHOP” for all the family.
