What is SECC?
South Eastern Community Connect (SECC) is a not-for-profit community organisation partially funded by the government to support people of all ages in south-east Sydney. With offices in Eastlakes and Mascot, SECC exists to reduce isolation – and its associated risks – via a range of community inclusion programs designed for children, young people, families, carers, and seniors with vulnerabilities and multiple risk factors.
SECC supports residents of the following LGAs:
- Botany Bay
- Port Botany
SECC staff are friendly, professional, and many speak different languages.
SECC has a voluntary board of directors which includes local community members.
It has been operating in Eastlakes for almost 42 years, and recently opened The SECC Community Hub in Mascot.

What we do and why we do it
We exist to support the community by providing services, programs and advocacy to eliminate barriers, enhance social inclusion, and improve quality of life for every individual.
Our programs include:
Advice and Information
Before and After School Care and Vacation Care
Staff support and help community members to achieve their goals, provide advice and undertake assessments and referrals while ensuring their needs and rights are upheld.
The Charter of Rights and Responsibilities for Home Care (the Charter) became law on 1 October 2009. The Charter applies to people in receipt of Australian Government funded Home Care packages legislated under the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act).
The New South Wales Community Sector Charter
This Charter has been prepared to define and communicate to other sectors of society (governments, business and the broader community) what the community sector is, and to raise awareness of its vital role and invaluable contribution to society. The Charter promotes a unified community sector by presenting a shared identity, vision and values. It is intended to empower community organisations across NSW by providing a vehicle for asserting a strong collective voice, and in doing so, increase our influence towards achieving our vision of a fair and just society for all. The development of this document is an initiative of the Forum of Non Government Agencies (FONGA) which is comprised of state-wide community peaks, regional and state wide organisations, and is convened by the Council of Social Service of NSW (NCOSS).
