I was honoured to be invited to Sunnyfield recently where I met staff and members of the Sunnyfield community.

Sunnyfield was established in Dee Why in 1952 by a group of parents, keen to create opportunities for their children with disabilities.

As an Association of families, they soon expanded from Dee Why and moved to their current site at Allambie Road, Allambie Heights where they developed their first hostel and later an activity therapy centre and accommodation facility. 

Sunnyfield has continued to grow to become one of the largest, most progressive and innovative disability service providers in NSW. 

 I thank the entire Sunnyfield team for a wonderful morning.
