Of the suppliers that Shepherd Filters engages, the one we are most proud to be affiliated with is Civic, a not-for-profit organisation that has provided services to people with intellectual disability and/or mental health conditions for 60 years. Founded in 1958 by a group of parents who believed their children had abilities and were capable of making a contribution to society, Civic now provides a range of services including:
• Accommodation – supported shared living and respite
• Supported employment and work ready training
• A range of social and learning activities
• Health and well-being supports including clinical services
Staff support individuals to reach their full potential, achieve their goals and participate in the community. Today, Civic supports more than 700 individuals with disability across the Greater Sydney, Hunter, Nepean and Shoalhaven regions, including 125+ supported employees undertaking meaningful employment.
