Our Values

Empathy / Listening / Understanding

We have a customer driven focus within the constraints of our capacity and obligations – it is not what we want, but what the customer needs that determines what we do.


The environment we work in is often challenging for everyone involved – we need to be reflective and supportive of each other. 

We need to build positive relationships and find time to enjoy the lighter moments.

Inclusivity / Fairness / Equity

We do our best to take everyone’s perspective into account.

We know we cannot always meet everyone’s expectations, but we will do our best to help others understand what we can do and why.

We will always think of the impact of what we do on others and include others in our decision making where it is practical to do so.

Honest / Ethical / Transparency

We will be open and honest and expect others to treat us the same way. 

We strive to do what is the right thing to do and welcome constructive feedback on how we can improve.

We will not walk past something we know is not right.


Thoughtful considerations are welcomed.

Our actions are in the best interests of our customers, our staff and our community – as a collective.


We are accountable and we need others to be accountable to us – everyone is responsible for owning the issue.


We need to be adaptable, flexible, tolerant, understanding, supportive and patient – but we will not procrastinate or be complacent.


In the 1980’s, Aware Industries recognised the need for accommodation services in Regional NSW. Here a dedicated team was developed and created ’Kirinari Community Services’. Our first leased house was named ‘Nurioopta’ from the Department of Housing (NSW) in West Albury, Nurioopta opened with four residents in May 1983. This was the beginning of many more leased, purchased and built houses over the next 33 years. From there, our support services grew, and we started providing support to people in their home, work and community.  

In 2018 Kirinari merged with Kalianna Enterprises Inc.  

Kalianna originated in 1966 beginning as a Training Centre. In 1970 they included adults as a ‘Sheltered Workshop’. 1993 Kalianna Laundry began operation and in 2000 Albury and District Transport merged into Kalianna Transport.  

Today both organisations operate as Kirinari Community Services Ltd.
