Macarthur

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.

Our Partners

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

Sargeants Pies Charitable Foundation has donated to The Shepherd Centre

“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 have provided pro bono develpment approval and project management 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
