Burwood Community Welfare Services (BCWS) is going through the process of changing our name! Our organisation will become known as Community Action for Better Living (CABL).

This will be the fourth time the organisation has changed its name since its establishment in 1967 as it continues to adapt to the changing world around us. We now serve an area much wider than just Burwoodand, rather than a focus on welfare, we deliver actions that support individuals and families and build community capacity to enable people, especially those who are experiencing difficulties, to live better lives. We remain committed to using our resources to provide the highest possible quality of service to the community of the Inner West.

The name change process is quite slow, involving a number of steps, including notifying a range of government agencies and developing new branding that can be used in all our communications. So for the next couple of months you will still see the name BCWS alongside the new name CABL.

We are aiming for a CABL launch event in late November/early December that will include the release of a new strategic plan for the coming years, so please keep an eye out for details in future newsletters, on social media and on our website.
