UnitingCare Burnside celebrates centenary
UnitingCare Burnside in 2011 celebrates 100 years of providing care for vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.
Burnside began with the launch of the first Burnside “Burnie” home for children at North Parramatta on June 17, 1911. One hundred years later, Burnside is still providing care for vulnerable and disadvantaged children and their families.
Burnside officially launched the Centenary with an event at Government House on June 17.
The event brought together key figures including service users who told their stories and special guest Professor Marie Bashir, Governor of New South Wales, who officially launched Burnside’s Because Children Matter book.
Burnside’s centenary is also an ideal time to highlight the ongoing need for action to support vulnerable children and young people.
To recognise this, Burnside launched the “…because children matter” campaign, which shares personal stories of hope and change from Burnside’s service users, staff and supporters over ten weeks.
