Gosford Regional Community Services is our official legal name. We are also known under the names of the Wyoming Community Centre, Point Clare Community Hall, and Wyoming Community Out of School Hours Care (OSHC).
We are an independent Incorporated Association, a registered Charity and hold Deductible Gift Recipient Status.
We commenced operations in October, 1990 and officially opened on 6 December, 1991. The Association is a non-profit, welfare and benevolent organisation whose main objective is to provide assistance to the socially and economically disadvantaged of our community.
In 2016, to better reflect our broad scope of services to the Gosford regional community, we undertook a brand refresh to become Gosford Regional Community Services.
Our Head Office is located at the Wyoming Community Centre, 147 Maidens Brush Rd Wyoming. The Building is owned by Gosford City Council but managed under a licence arrangement by our organisation.
Building a community rich in social capital, supporting and responding to family and individual needs.
Our mission is to support local community members by achieving the following objectives:
Local Issues - As a local community organisation we are proactive in assisting the local Gosford community to identify issues of local importance.
Local Strategies - We are committed to developing and supporting strategies which respond to issues impacting the Gosford region.
Local Information - Providing community information, education and advocacy through the delivery of community activities and a variety of other support services.
