WHO WE ARE
Civic is a not-for-profit organisation supporting people with disability. Founded in the 1950s by a group of parents caring for their children with disability in the Sutherland Shire, Civic now provides whole-of-life services in many NSW locations, while remaining true to the values that inspired its creation. We are proud to have supported people with disability for over 60 years and recognise that being invited into the lives of others is an honour and a privilege. For the past six decades people have been, and remain, at the heart of everything we do. We take pride in delivering quality services and supports to customers and families – giving every opportunity to lead the lives they want. Watch Civic’s CEO, Annie Doyle reflect on the milestones we’ve achieved, and aspirations for the future.
VISION, MISSION & VALUES
We look past obstacles and focus on what is possible. Our vision is our guiding star as we recognise that there is no one right answer, that every individual is unique. Our mission reflects our person-centred approach to supporting individuals and the fact that every moment has the potential for a positive outcome.
