Our History

1984 - LiveBetter (formerly CareWest) was established as the Orange Community Resource Centre (OCRO) by a group of socially active Orange residents during a climate of uncertainty about the future direction of community services in their local community. For the first 10 years the organisation served as a vehicle for community development activities, working with all levels of Government and other community groups to identify community needs and attract and arrange funding and other resources. OCRO then provided corporate and administrative support to the resultant programs and services which operated relatively independently.

Board & CEO

LiveBetter is led by an engaged skills-based Board comprising six members from a cross-section of professions and combined plethora of experience, ensuring continued excellence in service provision across our wide geographic footprint.
