Our Mission

Our Mission

St George Meals on Wheels is guided by several organisations including the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), Meals on Wheels Australia and Meals on Wheels NSW.

All Meals on Wheels services, Australia-wide, share the same fundamental ethos and commitment to the health and well-being of our community. However, services in each State are governed and structured differently.

We are a member of NSW Meals on Wheels, and they, in turn, provide us with advocacy, assistance, resources and training. They also support us with policies, procedures, compliance and governance, promotion and marketing. In NSW there are 170 branches/services like us.

As an organisation we strive for a just and fair society for everyone and we are committed to supporting the Charter for the NSW Community Sector.
