Orana NSW Inc.


Orana is small local non-for-profit organisation based in the Sutherland Shire, with two centres based in Sutherland and Gymea. Orana has worked in the community for 50 years, specifically with those who are experiencing any form of social isolation and/or financial hardship. We work efficiently to meet the needs of the community, ensuring that our community is valued, supported, and connected. We run a very successful home visiting service for families in the Sutherland Shire in need of in-home support, domestic violence counselling and case management, free meals, emergency relief, psychology sessions, support groups, information and referral and many more programs.

Our Safety and Healing program supports women in the Sutherland Shire who are currently experiencing or have experienced a violent relationship. A free and confidential service providing counselling and case management to women in the Sutherland Shire who have or are currently experiencing a violent relationship. Case management includes support around developing a safety plan, assistance with Housing, Centrelink and other agency forms, connection with support services and groups and much more. We see any woman regardless of age, with or without children. Our sessions are not capped and we work with women for as long as they need during their recovery journey. We work from a trauma informed perspective at all times. This service has never been fully funded and we must fundraise or apply for grants on a regular basis to allow us to support our women.
