Partnerships and Projects
Home/Partnerships and Projects


The Canopy has a philosophy of working collaboratively with other organisations in the government (state, local and commonwealth) and non-government sectors as well as the corporate sector. This maximises resources and therefore increase potential to provide the best possible outcome for local communities and stakeholders.


Partnerships may take various forms ranging from 2 organisations working together to provide a service through to multiple organisations being involved in the development of innovative programs that require strategic thinking and planning and strong leadership skills. The Canopy has a track record of participation and leadership in the range of forms that a partnership may take.





Each year we seek assistance from local organisations /groups and businesses alike who may have capacity to contribute food and toy hampers.

These are distributed through our Family Services staff, bringing relief to Lake Macquarie families at Christmas time. For more information please email
