The Shepherd Centre is excited to have commenced interim services for families of the Macarthur region. Through the support of the Campbelltown City Council, we are holding appointments, groups and sessions at the Ron Moore Community Centre in Minto while we continue to fundraise to build our permanent site.

The Shepherd Centre were awarded a generous grant from Sargeant’s Pies with the vision to build a purpose built centre that can service the Macarthur region
In March 2017, The Shepherd Centre purchased a site in Campbelltown close to transport and the town centre.
Through the generous support of Root Partnerships plans are drawn up for the Macarthur centre featuring undercover parking, wheelchair access and a natural play space. The DA is submitted and approved.
2020 and beyond!
With the help of our donors we hope to have the Macarthur centre up and running by 2020!

Our amazing progress to date is due to the support of the following partners:
Our site in Campbelltown was purchased with thanks to Sargent’s Pies Charitable Foundation
“As our factory is in Western Sydney we see
that there is a great need for additional services in
the outer suburbs. As our population grows faster in the west than some of the services available the fact that The Shepherd Centre is choosing to set up in Campbelltown makes sense.” – Brian Andrews, Purchasing Manager, Sargent Pies
Root Partnerships have provided crucial pro bono project management and development advisory support
“Root Partnerships chose to support The Shepherd Centre on this project because of the life changing outcomes that The Shepherd Centre provides for children with hearing loss and their families and Root Partnerships ethical philosophy of supporting meaningful causes and increasing the awareness of our staff and business partners of the positive sense associated with aligning and supporting such worthwhile causes in the community.
Root Partnerships has encouraged the vast majority of other consultancies working on the project to also provide their services on a pro bono basis and promotes the strong sense of purpose collaborating and promoting the proposed project and its outcomes.”
– David Wiles, Associate Director, Root Partnerships
