Bondi Beach Cottage Inc. (the Cottage) is a not for profit community organisation, established in 1984 and is based in Bondi. It provides for a range of family services (which are outlined in the family services section of this website), as well as an occasional childcare facility (see child care section) catering for up to 20 children, a number of which are for clients of family services.
The Cottage works collaboratively with several local communities, especially Waverley, Randwick and Woollahra, responding to the needs and demands from the community. It provides services for people on low incomes and those facing challenging life experiences.
The services provided at the Cottage are not only for low income people, but a service that facilitates access and equity in service delivery (our clientelle are not just low income earners but more families struggling with life issues/experiences amongst DFV).
The Cottage is a registered charitable organisation, so any donations gratefully received will be fully tax deductable.
A volunteer Board, who are drawn from the local community, community organisations and the private sector, manages the Cottage. The Board meets monthly to discuss strategic matters and makes key decisions on policy, direction and funding.
The Cottage works collaboratively with a number of other community organisations in the local areas including Holdsworth Community Centre, Jewish House, Delores and the Deli Womens and Childrens Service, just to name a few.
The Cottage also offers a range of parenting programs including groups for new parents and other support groups each year. These are listed regularly under the ‘Programs page’ (rather than parenting) on this website.
