We fundamentally believe that every human being is inherently worthy and that, regardless of life circumstance, background or beliefs, every individual matters.

Flourishing Communities

Our Mission

Hopefield is a Christian, community based, therapeutic and social services organisation that enables people to solve issues by equipping them for change, inspiring hope and transforming lives.

Our Why

We fundamentally believe that every human being is inherently worthy.

Regardless of life circumstance, background or belief, every individual matters and we exist to improve the lives and wellbeing of our clients by showing them that change is possible.

We do this by offering “pay as you can services”, equipping clients with the every-day skills necessary for improved communication, resilience, social and emotional functioning, healthy relationships and improved sense of belonging.

Our Core Values

Hope is the umbrella under which every interaction is conducted. Hope is offered to every person who comes into contact with Hopefield.







Hopefield has three consistent organisational outcomes across all endeavours:

Individuals are emotionally & functionally healthy

Families are safe nurturing and resilient

Communities are vibrant connected and thriving

Our People

Hopefield employs quality staff to provide professional, evidence-based clinical services (psychology, counselling, speech pathology), case management, support and group services, and community education to individuals, couples, families and organisations in our community.

Our History

Hopefield began as Tea Gardens Cottage in February 1995 in a small room in Gymea Baptist Church. 

With a vision to serve the community and meet peoples needs, Tea Gardens Cottage, soon became incorporated and operated under the name of Southern Community Welfare for 20 years.
