Partner Summary


Sutherland Shire Family Services (SSFS) is an organisation dedicated to and focused upon providing services that lead to safety and well-being for families in the Sutherland Shire and St. George areas. They bring together a range of services offered by dedicated professionals that help to create brighter futures for children and their families.

They also aim to support and strengthen the capacity of families within our community, particularly those who have been impacted by disadvantage, violence and trauma. Through providing these services, they contribute to the promotion and maintenance of safety and wellbeing among all family members.

I can’t thank you enough for the generosity displayed by Capital Bluestone in hosting the Community & Business Leader’s luncheon on Friday. Both the Board and I were delighted with how the event came together, and incredibly grateful for your generous support, not only with the event, but in encouraging your contacts to support our service.

Diane Manns, CEO Sutherland Shire Family Services.

The support shown by attendees through donations and raffle ticket purchases was humbling. I personally received some wonderful feedback about the quality of the speakers we had, along with widespread interest in our service.
