Grainery Care is a local not-for-profit charity working to engage, empower and equip people who are struggling to make ends meet, lonely or in need of a hand to get back up.
We don't just provide handouts, we walk alongside people—inviting them into community and empowering them to become active and positive encouragers of others.

For over 20 years Grainery Care has been providing empowerment and support to the
people of the Hunter region. Having operated out of the Grainery Church and different rented properties in Mayfield and Islington, in 2020 we began the search for a new premises in a location more central to the community we serve.
In 2020 we purchased the old bakery at 252 Maitland Road, Mayfield—with the vision of turning it into a community centre that would house:
Comprising 2 buildings, development of the property was split in two with Stage 1 works (River Café, new Foodcare Centre and at-risk accommodation) funded through generous donations in 2020—which will be completed later this year.
This year's Grainery Care 252 Appeal will support stage 2 of the building works which includes new meeting rooms for support groups, community space including a peaceful indoor/outdoor lounge and hospitality area as well as additional at-risk accommodation for families from the community in need of support.
Will you partner with us in raising $150,000 to cover the development of Stage 2 and the completion of the 252 Community Centre?
Your tax deductible donation will positively impact the lives of thousands in our community through the provision of cheap and low-cost food, empowering training and support ,and life-saving accommodation for people in need.
Financially contribute to the completion of the 252 Community Centre.
Become a volunteer in our community in a variety of different ways.
Uphold Grainery Care and those we serve in prayer as we journey together.
