Our Story

Since 1994, we’ve been providing independent, trusted, specialist industry expertise, because we care. We have assisted more than 15,000 people (2,500 in the last year alone!), through some of life’s most difficult and transitional times. With guidance from our voluntary Board of Directors, Clinical Governance Committee and Consumer Advisory Group, Proveda’s leadership and future direction is in good hands.

Formerly Community Care Northern Beaches (CCNB), our story began as a locally focused, grass-roots community organisation based out of Mona Vale in Sydney. From this original location, we helped older people to remain independent at home, and provided assistance for those living with dementia.

Organisational charity status was awarded to us in 2000, and thereafter, as our capacity grew, so too did the opportunity to do more. We moved further up the hill from Mona Vale to Frenchs Forest and continued to look for more ways that we could assist our community, adding expertise in disability services, palliative care, respite for carers and a variety of important, additional mental health services including GP Social Work and suicide prevention, along with our own valuable community programs like the Belong Club. Today we are excited to have over 80 staff and 150 volunteers!

We have considerable experience supporting disability, mental health and wellbeing, for those most vulnerable in our community and for their carers too. This, along with our extensive knowledge in ageing, (and aged care), dementia (and memory loss), as well as more recently, in end of life and suicide (bereavement and prevention), means we are experts in navigating all aspects of health and wellbeing.

The newer strings to our bow, with the recent merger and the additional acquisition of nonprofit organisations Wings of Hope and The Groundswell Project Australia, provide highly sensitive and caring expertise nationally, for Australians coming back from suicide bereavement, as well as planning for end of life.

Enjoy our more detailed journey below. We are proud to share our evolution into a leading provider of community care.
