Our Vision is for a  healthy local community that reflects and supports dignity, equality and inclusion of all people.  

Our Mission is to strengthen our community by delivering a diverse range of quality human services to improve opportunities and to empower people to reach their full potential. 



Our Story

Douglas Shire Community Services Association Ltd (DSCSA Ltd) is a not-for-profit regional community organisation providing services, programs and activities for people in the Douglas and Cook Shires. The staff and volunteers of DSCSA Ltd strive to build a community that cares and supports the vulnerable and disadvantaged, by providing services for those in need.  

Our contribution is made through the ongoing development and maintenance of policy and planning frameworks, the coordination and delivery of programs and support services to vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community, youth, people with a disability, people living with severe and persistent mental illness their families and carers.


Our Approach

We deliver quality, person-centered services driven by the desire to challenge disadvantage, and to foster hope and independence. Ultimately we strive to increase the awareness of opportunity and choices available for people to access, participate and contribute to their community.

We work to build the capacity of individuals to realise their full potential in key outcome areas and work to grow their resilience, independence and self- sufficiency through the provision of services focused on education, health and independence.
