Welcome to Loud Shirt Day supporting
The Shepherd Centre

Loud Shirt Day is a fun annual event when you can wear your brightest clothes and raise funds to give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children. This year we’ll be celebrating nationally on Friday 20th October, but you can hold a Loud Shirt Day any time between now and the end of October.

Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as it’s got colour and pizazz it’ll be perfect for Loud Shirt Day.

If you’re the social and energetic type, why not organise an event at work, school or with friends?  You can even create a theme – most outrageous shirt, best 80’s fashion, most hideous sweater – and ask people to make a donation.

Any excuse for a loud get together is good. Have it over morning tea, lunch or a staff meeting – just don’t forget the fashion parade.

Loud Shirt Day is the perfect way to GET LOUD FOR DEAF KIDS like Mia and Halle

The Shepherd Centre - Giving deaf children a voice

The Shepherd Centre has been helping children who are deaf or have a hearing loss to learn how to listen and speak for 40 years. Founded in 1970 with just five families, The Shepherd Centre now helps over 400 families in our five centres across NSW and the ACT, as well as regional and remote areas in NSW and Tasmania via its Teleintervention program. The organisation is recognised as a leader in the field of Speech Therapy, providing assistance to parents of children who are deaf or have a hearing loss to help them develop spoken language, so that they can reach their full potential and be a fully contributing member of the community.

The Shepherd Centre has assisted over 2,000 children and their families over the last 40 years. Ninety per cent of children graduate from The Shepherd Centre and enter mainstream schooling and the vast majority have age-appropriate speech and language. Support from the community provides almost 70% of the much needed funds to provide these programs to our students. Fundraising for The Shepherd Centre will help us to continue our life-changing work.
