Benevolent Society appoints Raine & Horne Commercial to support expansion across NSW

Raine & Horne Commercial has been appointed by The Benevolent Society as its exclusive commercial agent to secure a number of key sites across NSW.

“The Benevolent Society is Australia’s oldest charity and securing this well-respected institution as a client is a fantastic appointment for us,” said Angus Raine, Executive Chairman of the Raine & Horne Group.

“Raine & Horne Commercial Sydney CBD’s Christian Cirillo and Meegan Graham are managing this appointment and will be liaising with our extensive office network across Sydney and regional NSW to help secure suitable sites for the joining together of The Benevolent Society and NSW Government’s Community Disability Support Teams providing clinical services,” he added. 

The Benevolent Society has been selected by the NSW Government as the new operator of its FACS’ Specialist Community Disability Support teams in NSW.

These services, which include 800 therapy, case management and behaviour support professionals, are joining together with The Benevolent Society to support disability clients as they transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)[i].

As a result, The Benevolent Society is consolidating many of the sites currently used by the two teams and expanding its operations in the Sydney metropolitan area and regional NSW.

The Benevolent Society CEO Jo Toohey said, “Raine and Horne’s reach across NSW and their long heritage have made them a perfect partner for us in this exciting time. We will be joining, combining, refurbishing and creating new sites that will enable us to provide more and better services to all clients.”
