Annual Reports

2017-18 | PSC Chair and CEO Report –
Empowering people, families and communities.

PSC is dedicated to supporting, empowering and strengthening lives spanning all age groups. Through Family Works we focus on those who are socially disadvantaged including the most marginalised. Through Enliven we support the elders of our communities to ‘thrive, not just survive’ by creating elder-centred communities that focus on holistic well being.

Financial performance

In the 2017-18 financial year, PSC generated a surplus of $525,972. Our balance sheet continues to be very strong, but the challenge remains to build a sustainable long-term future in the face of increasing financial pressure on Enliven’s aged care facilities.

Property development

Extensive groundworks have been carried out at our Kilmarnock facility in Berhampore and the apartment phase of the development will approach the consenting stage next year.

Subject to final approvals, we expect to start the construction of 44 retirement apartments in a staged manner at Longview Home in Tawa from November this year.

Strong and compassionate services

Family Works continues to build on its growing reputation as a social service provider that is innovative and works across a broad community in our society dealing with a wide range of complex issues.

While the future focus of the organisation is quite properly on the need to future-proof our Enliven business model, you can be sure that at the heart of everything we do is our purpose. This is to provide care for those in need and to strengthen the communities they live in.
