Philanthropy at The Shepherd Centre

Why Philanthropy matters

‘At The Shepherd Centre we know that the work we do, and the amazing achievements of the children in our care, are only made possible through the support of our generous and inspiring partners. The amazing support we receive from our partner organizations and from philanthropic individuals makes a reality of outcomes which would otherwise be simply unachievable.

If you would like to be involved in helping to bring the gifts of speech and sound to children with hearing loss and helping them to live their fullest lives please reach out to our philanthropy team here.

Thanks to all of our incredible supporters and partners, deaf children can live in the world of sound.

And for that we are all most sincerely grateful’.

Doctor Jim Hungerford CEO
