OUR PROJECTS

ITSOWEL- Italian Social Welfare Organisation of Wollongong, has been delivering services to the Italian-speaking community in the Illawarra for 30 years.
We are a non-profit community organisation with a registered charity status directed by a voluntary Board of Management.
The majority of the Organisation's services are funded by a combination of: 
  •  Federal and State Government grants
  •  Fees from service recipients
  •  Fundraising activities
  •  Sponsorship
The organisation is committed to the delivery of culturally specific services to the frail aged, persons with a disability and carers of an Italian-speaking
or CALD background.

Australian Aged Care Quality Agency Review
ITSOWEL underwent a quality review conducted by the Quality Agency on 19 January 2016.
The quality review assessed the performance of ITSOWEL's Community Home Support Program services
against each of the expected outcomes of the Home Care Standards as set out in the Quality of Care Principles 2014.
ITSOWEL is pleased to inform the community that it has received the Final Quality Review Report and it has met
18 out of the 18 expected outcomes of the Home Care Standards.
