Connecting people and possibility for over 75 years
At Holdsworth, what we do is all about you. That’s why everything we do, we do it together. We believe in partnering with communities to inspire human connection, and we believe in new possibilities.
Supporting people to maintain their independence and enhance their quality of life is at the heart of what we do, and we work across disability, aged care and families to improve access, tailor support and create connections.
Connection, care and community:
creating the best outcomes, together

Holdsworth volunteer Miya is a passionate advocate for those living with Dementia in the community. Miya first connected with Holdsworth while supporting her father through Dementia - with Holdsworth fondly referred to as his ‘club’. She supports Dementia Australia and the Woollahra Dementia Alliance to help businesses become Dementia-friendly, a topic close to heart after the many small things local businesses did to create a welcoming space for her father, including his favourite cafe creating a special ‘Bob’s Menu’.
Since 2019, HomeShare offered incredible benefits to 54 people. These matches saw improvements in quality of life, peace of mind and support for families and carers, and an affordable housing solution. During this time, Holdsworth was grateful for the support from grant funders and philanthropists who believed in it as a service offering in their community. Holdsworth would like to thank all our grant funders.
In a heartwarming display of unity and support, Holdsworth in collaboration with the Woollahra Dementia Alliance and Woollahra Council, hosted its first ever week-long event, transforming Queen Street to raise awareness about dementia and its aims of creating a dementia friendly community in Woollahra.
Dementia-friendly communities are essential to support the growing number of Australians living with dementia, their carers and families. Queen Street Woollahra is hosting a week-long celebration of people living with dementia – Monday June 19 to Friday June 23. Join us and celebrate our community!
For the past decade, Katherine has used Holdsworth’s transport services due to her limited mobility, but when she was encouraged to join Wellness Hub, she had reservations. Thankfully, she decided to try, and she’s found the sensitive care and professionalism has helped her maintain her health and independence, plus she enjoyed it much more than she’d expected! The Katherine before Wellness Hub, and the Katherine now: “They’re chalk and cheese,” she says.
