Over the years it has been wonderful to see Roy grow in his independence and confidence.

Roy loves going out to the local pub with friends for Trivia nights; going to the races; participating in activities with a local church group; going to the raffles at the club; playing bingo and keeping up to date with local news.

To support Roy in his interests and achieving his goals in regularly getting out and about in the community and participating in regular community based activities with independence, New Haven Farm Home have worked with Roy to enable him to move to one of our Richmond based sites.

Roy is now living with some of his friends and is thriving in his new home. He is now able to walk to the local record store independently and it is great to see him continue to grow in his confidence as a valued community member.


Congratulations to Patrick Brennan who won first prize at the Hawkesbury Show for his decorated cake!

Pat was supported to plan and design his cake and chose to learn how to create a dog shaped cake topper.

Inspired by his love of dogs and his weekly volunteer position at GuideDogs NSW, Pat showed patience, dedication and lots of creativity as he practiced his cake decorating skills and ultimately created the final cake for the show.

We think he did a great job and are very excited for Pat and the recognition of his abilities.

Thank you to Madelaine, one of New Haven Farm Home’s support workers, who supported Pat in this project. Madelaine constantly guided and encouraged Pat to achieve his show entry goals.

Well done Pat!
