Our Commitment to Children

Woodville Alliance is committed to child safety. We have zero tolerance to child abuse and take seriously any concerns about child safety. We have a child safe framework and action plan, ensuring ongoing review and assessment of policies and processes. Woodville Alliance staff providing service and support to children meet all regulatory and compliance requirements, and are skilled and experienced to work with children.

Our Commitment to Community

We are committed to our community and working together across the local government areas of Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Liverpool and extend to other areas of Western Sydney, where support is needed most.

Our community is diverse and dynamic, made up of varied cultures, languages, traditions, religious and spiritual practices. This diversity strengthens the range of identities, perspectives, experiences and lifestyles of our community, including people young and old, people with disability, the LGBTQIA+ community and those who have experienced advantages or disadvantages.

We work with community to build social cohesion and resilience by eliminating discrimination and mitigating disadvantage. 

We actively remove barriers to inclusive participation and promote relationships based on compassion and respect. We work with community partners and key stakeholders to deliver tailored services, programs, and events and raise awareness by speaking boldly about the strengths and needs of our community.

Our History

Our history of working in community can be traced back over 40 years. 

In July 2015 we dropped “Community Services” from our name and became Woodville Alliance.

We like the word ‘Alliance’ because it emphasises our priority to work in partnership with all people, from all walks of life, especially members of our local communities in Western Sydney. Only by listening to each other and working out solutions together, can we make a better future.

Our Strategy

Woodville Alliance’s Strategic Directions set a pathway for deepening our understanding and relationship with community and strengthening our capability to do more with community. In the latter part of our strategic horizons, we will innovate by co-designing services with community, taking a test-and-try approach and measuring our impact.

A key strength of our organisation is our high levels of staff engagement, diverse workforce and commitment to quality. Throughout our strategic journey, we will continue to prioritise and invest in the capability and well-being of our people (staff).
