Lithgow Community Project's aim is to assist people to explore options, develop their own goals and conscious decision making processes as well as to connect people to knowledge and services which improve their awareness of broader social issues and how this may impact their life and choices.
We are committed to ethical practice and regular critique of our governance and work
WHO WE ARE
LCP is a community based not for profit organisation managed by a local volunteer management committee. Our core funding is received via Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) and Domestic and Family Violence Response Enhancement (DVRE) programs. LCP is also a partner and receives funding from Link Wentworth Community Housing under the Nepean Blue Mountains Tenancy program.
Our service has been a part of the Lithgow community since 1988. We have knowledge of the community and have developed good working relationships with other service providers to help us meet our clients needs.
WHAT WE DO
In practical terms, we support people who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness to achieve safe and stable housing and support women and children to live free from violence and abuse.
We work from dignity driven, client lead, strengths based, trauma and culturally informed frameworks alongside people. We consider people’s experience holistically and support them to improve housing, safety, empowerment, connection, health, financial, education and employment outcomes where possible.
LCP’s Practice Framework outlines and integrates the many elements that inform the work we do.
LCP is an incorporated association with governance and oversight provided by our volunteer Management Committee.
LCP operates within the Specialist Homelessness Services Standards and is currently in the process of obtaining Certificate Level Accreditation via the Australian Services Excellence Standards (ASES).
LCP’s activities are informed by LCP’s overarching Principles, our Strategic Plan, annual Operational Plans and our funding bodies recommissioning expectations all of which are outlined in our Annual Report.
