We have proudly celebrated the opening of our new Lismore office in the Westlawn Building at 29 Molesworth Street!

After losing four of our five Lismore offices in the February floods, we are thrilled to bring 120 staff back to Lismore’s Central Business District, a commitment to the region’s future.

We deliver more than 20 community support programs in the areas of homelessness, mental health, family and youth supports, and disability inclusion. We are unwavering in our support of this region.

Our new rooms are fully accessible to people with a disability, with warm and welcoming spaces designed in consultation with an occupational therapist and our staff – who are eager to again welcome community in person!

Social Futures acknowledges the support of both the Australian and NSW governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.

Our CEO Tony Davies was joined in cutting the ribbon by The Hon. Natasha Maclaren-Jones MLC, NSW Minister for Families and Communities and Minister for Disability Services representing the NSW Premier, Steve Krieg, Lismore Mayor, Jason Trethowan, CEO headspace National, Luke Napolitano, General Manager Partner and Contact Centre Division NDIA, Sue Higginson, MLC, Janelle Saffin, Member for Lismore, Social Futures Board members Margarita Escartin, Leanne Coventry, Keith Sloan, Chair Pat Grier and Deputy Chair Kirstie McClean.
