Sod Turning Media Release

Sod Turning of Grace's Place

Grace’s Place started out as an idea. A dream to give children affected by homicide a brighter, happier future. This idea has flourished into an amazing team and a very real commitment to building a world-first residential trauma centre for children affected by homicide.

The project has now been backed by State and Federal Government – an amazing testament to the work that The Homicide Victims’ Support Group (HVSG NSW) do in our state.

The first ground was broken on Saturday 7 September in the company of our team, supporters, donors and sponsors. We celebrated community, and all of the goodwill surrounding us on this very special day in Doonside.

The exceptional turnout, heartfelt speeches and a great sense of community pride made the day an enormous success. We also received amazing media coverage on Nine News and Today.

We would like to thank all of our families, donors, sponsors and supporters as we move towards building Grace’s Place in brick and mortar. Our doors are set to open in 2021.

Stay tuned for future events, fundraising news and project updates.
