Operating under Windsor Park Hub Ltd are four social enterprises which serve the community in the areas of child care, graphic design, and funeral services. Any surplus made by each unit are injected back into the communities they serve through Windsor Park Hub Ltd.

Some of these companies run a volunteer training programme and provide skills training, as well as volunteer work experience, which can be used for the participant's future employment.


Small Fries was created to be much more than just a childcare centre. It's a place where both children and families can belong, find support and journey through the preschool years together.


WindsorCreative is a faith-based graphic design studio social enterprise with a vision to partner with churches, charities, and social enterprises by providing powerful graphic design deserving of their meaningful messages as they reach their own vision to make a difference in their community—ultimately, we change communities with them.


Care and compassion from the moment we meet. Our purpose is to serve the community through much fairer pricing of funeral services than is currently available, while still providing the highest quality of care and professionalism.
