A fundamental part of the culture at Beck Legal is their commitment and contribution to the regional community. The Heathcote community recently received a $650,000 contribution from the Department of Education’s, Children’s Facilities Capital Program to assist with the $1.3 million build of the new Community Children’s Hub. Joining forces with Heathcote Community Childrens Services Association, Beck Legal are proudly providing pro-bono legal advice to assist the project in securing the first childcare centre for the community.

This project, creating at least 30 local jobs, will bring together a range of services where professionals and community will work together to deliver education, care, health and support services to children and their families. The new facilities will provide 76 child care places and include consulting rooms for Maternal child health nurses, Community Health Professionals (including speech pathologist, family domestic violence counsellor, NDIS, monthly visit by a pediatrician); and Counselling rooms.

The hub will be a long day care and early learning centre built to service a community that currently has no local access to occasional or long day care. The project will also link in with the local kindergarten, playgroup, primary schools and a raft of family health and well-being services. This project will enhance access to an important range of services, work toward redressing community disadvantage and connects with Beck Legal’s commitment to corporate social responsibility of giving back to their local community.
