The Management Committee of BCWS wish to advise our community that Christine Strachan has retired as Burwood Community Welfare Services Inc. (BCWS) CEO, following a well-deserved period of leave. 

Christine’s retirement means we say goodbye to one of our most long serving team members and influential community champions. 

After taking the reins of the Burwood Information and Aid Centre over 42 years ago, Christine has led the growth of this service through Domestic Violence Advocacy, Meals on Wheels and family support services. BCWS is now well positioned to contribute to stronger, more resilient communities, improved organisational performance and responsive partnerships with other services and agencies. 

Our entire team is so appreciative of the contribution Christine has made over the past forty plus years, during which time she achieved remarkable results and turned the organisation into a significant service for numerous members of our community. 

We are certain that those who have been aided by the service over the years would join us in acknowledging and thanking Christine for her efforts. 

We wish her all the best for her retirement.
