Community Support and Outreach Services Central Coast (Community SOS)
located on the beautiful sunny Central Coast of New South Wales.
Originally known as Gosford Shire Community Service, we were also the first non-Government
Community organisation on the Central Coast; the fifth in New South Wales.
In October 1970 Gosford City Community & Information Service had its inaugural meeting and a
Management Committee was formed. In February 1971, a training course was held for our first volunteers and an office was opened in Mann Street Gosford.
We have been also known as The Gosford Narara Neighbourhood Centre and Narara Community Centre.
In our many years of operation we have continued to help the communities of the Central Coast with a wide range of programs to assist the Community in any way possible. To this day we continue to provide a safe space for our locals where they can feel welcomed and become involved in their local area through services and activities where people can meet, connect, share, learn and be helped in whatever situation they are facing.
The community centre's vision is to offer practical help to build a better future. We are committed to improving people's lives and
connecting the community. We value empathy, rapport, trust, and understanding, both in the community and in our work place .
We work with our local community to address immediate concerns. If you would like to know more about the centre and our services please feel free to call or visit.
