How are we funded?

The Burwood Centre was established using donations from the Burwood Park Foundation, a charitable trust that was set-up following the closure of the Burwood Park School for the Deaf.

The Burwood Centre is also helped with monies sourced by the Mary Hare Foundation but is autonomous from Mary Hare School and its oral communication philosophy.

Although we also make a charge to families for our assessments, this does not meet the full cost. Assessments are heavily subsidised with charitable money.
