It is our pleasure to announce that we have entered into a partnership with local NPL football side Maitland FC.
The club is doing great things in the Maitland area for football and the sporting community in Maitland as a whole.
The 2019 FFA Cup at Maitland Sportsground last season showed how far they have come in a short period of time. Making the last 32 in an Australia wide competition. The hard work by the committee off the field and the commitment and never say die attitude on the field are qualities we value and like to see in our business.
Good luck to Maitland FC for the coming season.

Special Childrens Christmas Party
The Special Children’s Christmas Parties are the biggest events of their kind in Australia for special needs children and their families. We work closely with hundreds of charities, schools, community groups and government organisations throughout the country to select these special children. The children invited, are children who suffer from one of the following: serious illnesses, physical or intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances.
Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are types of blood cancer. Blood cancer and related disorders can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time.
Every day another 35 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That’s one Aussie every 41 minutes.
Right now, more than 60,000 Australians are living with blood cancer or related disorders.
Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
Lambourne & Lucas Charity Golf Day
Each year Lambourne and Partners hold a charity golf day selecting a local cause. Since 2011 Lambourne Partners’ Annual Charity Golf Day has raised over $8000 for local charities. 2021 is assisting to raise funds for Centre For Hope which works to empower disadvantaged young people to respect themselves, connect with the wider community and to create an inspired life.
1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia that’s around 5 million people. And roughly 60% of these people won’t seek help.
As the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan, our aim is to create a mentally healthier world for everyone.
We do this through ‘translational’ research. Integrating our research studies, education programs, digital tools and apps, clinical services, and public resources to discover new solutions, foster connections and create real-world change.
Our partnerships with people with lived experience, federal, state and local governments, communities, schools, corporate Australia and others in the mental health sector enables us to drive evidence-informed change in mental health where it’s needed most.
