Bucketts Way Neighbourhood Group Inc. (BWNG) is a non-profit, locally-focused organisation formed in 1989 that provides a variety of essential community services to the people of Gloucester and surrounds.
Our area of service spans from Limeburners Creek in the south to Krambach in the east and includes the communities of Gloucester, Barrington, Stratford, Craven, Wards River, Stroud Road, Stroud, Booral and Allworth.
BWNG receives some government funding but relies heavily on grants and donations to be able to maintain our extensive, diverse programmes and fill the gaps in services available to local people.
The Safety Net and Community Connections programmes, ageing and disability services, training, Meals on Wheels, health transport service and all logistical aspects of the organisation operate within BWNG’s premises at 88 King Street, Gloucester, NSW.
BWNG enjoys partnerships with many other non-profit organisations and services such as Legal Aid NSW, Meals on Wheels NSW, Cancer Council NSW and Financial Counselling Australia.
In partnership with various registered training organisations we coordinate regular short courses such as First Aid and Fire Safety training. Our King Street premises also provides a versatile space for out-of-area training organisations and outreach programmes to operate from, which gives our rural community access to more of the services available in more urban areas.
BWNG is governed by a seven member volunteer Board of Management voted in at the annual general meeting by the financial members of the organisation.
Over the last 33 years, we have grown and evolved, becoming one of the largest employers in Gloucester, and the only local-based provider of many essential services. Our team currently consists of over 20 volunteers and over 50 employees.
We receive funding for our diverse projects from the Ageing, Disability & Home Care, Community Services and the Australian Government for various projects and acknowledges their contribution for the services and programs BWNG Inc provides.
We also rely heavily on the generosity of donors to fill the gaps in the services available to our community.
We provide essential services to the communities of Gloucester, Barrington, Stroud and surrounding towns and villages in the MidCoast local government area of New South Wales.
We operate from our central administrative building, located at 88 King Street, Gloucester NSW 2422
Our diverse organisation provides a wide range of essential services to the Gloucester community including:
