Caring for our community started with several prominent Gladesville residents and business owners including John Evans a retailer who saw members of their community struggling and living in poverty. At the time the businesses came together and each donated £10.00 towards the first budget, and your local community centre was born on 24th November, 1966. Meals On Wheels started its first run on 31 July, 1967 delivering 15 meals.
Fifty years later, Hunters Hill Ryde Community Services delivers over 13,300 meals and provides 7 Social Support Programs and 6 Community Support Services with 55,993 hours of direct services to its diverse community members to realise their potential and independence.
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we decided to recognise the many people, stories and achievements that make the organisation what it is today. To inspire our future HHRCS wishes to strengthen our connection with our community and respond to their future needs.
