What people say about the Dunlea Centre

  • "Thank you for looking after my grandson. I was out of ideas and don’t know where both of us would be without Dunlea. The staff are incredibly supportive and have given him the courage to try and to believe in himself."
    Grandparent, 2020
  • "It’s amazing. They are helping me to build friendships, they help me with my education. Everything is just amazing."
    Former Student
  • "Dunlea has changed our lives. Without Dunlea, I don’t know where my family would be today. Dunlea saved my life. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for this service. Dunlea was my last port of call, if this didn’t help my son, I was out of options.  My son is now a different person and I will never be able to repay Dunlea for what they have done. This program and the staff are beyond exceptional."
  • "Since coming to the Hamilton Program at Dunlea Centre I am actually doing something with my education. Before coming to the program, I hadn’t been to school in over a year. This program is much less stressful than a mainstream school."
    Current Student
  • "The Hamilton program has helped my son immensely with schooling. Before the program we had run out of options and didn’t have anywhere to go. Now my son loves going to school and is improving his education."
