Caring for a child can be tough and very challenging. While every child is a joy to their parents, families of children with a disability find simple everyday living more difficult. Financial assistance, respite care - time out and community support can make a world of difference.
The Westfield Community Program was launched in early 2008 to address these needs in our local communities. Each Westfield Centre across Australia partners with a local disability service provider to help improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and their families.
Westfield Bondi Junction encourages you to support its local community partner Holdsworth Community Centre.
The Holdsworth Community Centre is at the heart of the community of Woollahra in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
The centre offers disability services for both children and adults, who have a mild to moderate intellectual disability and live with a primary carer in Eastern Sydney and focuses on whole families, supporting parents and carers and maximising opportunities for those living with an intellectual disability.
Holdsworth provides a wide range of quality support, information, advocacy, referrals, programs and activities. They approach service delivery from the perspective of the person’s needs and provide integrated services that may come from several of our programs working in harmony. They help people to make connections, to access services, to engage with the community, to look after themselves and those they care for and to retain their independence and dignity.
All of Holdsworth's services are heavily subsidised by their funders and partners, but they do charge small fees for most services. However, no eligible client will ever be refused services due to inability to pay their fees.
There are many ways in which you can contribute to the work of the Centre and its services. This can be by way of giving your time or expertise as a volunteer by becoming a member or by making a donation.
You can make a general donation online or send a cheque to:
