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 Hornsby is currently updating information on how you can help in your local community. Please visit this page again soon to get inspired and take action.
Northcott Disability Services
Northcott Disability Services is one of the state's leading service providers for people with a broad range of disabilities, supporting 10,000 people with disabilities, their families and carers across NSW and the ACT for over 80 years.
A broad range of programs are provided, from support through the initial diagnosis period and early intervention, through to early childhood development and assisting adults gain employment and independent living skills.
For people with disabilities, the support and services Northcott provides can often mean the difference between a life of isolation and segregation and a life of greater self-reliance and confidence. Support and services are not only directly provided to our clients, but their carers, siblings and the entire family.
