Description

The Factory is a double-storied terrace owned by The NSW Department of Housing and located at 67 Raglan Street, Redfern/Waterloo. 
Alleged to once being an R.M. Williams hat factory, it has for the past 30 or so run a range of programs for the residents of the area, 
especially those who live in the surrounding public housing and high rise and precinct dwellings. 
The Factory also acts as a meeting place for local organizations. 
They have a bus that is a vital part of these programs for group excursions, picking children up from school in the afternoons, and for their vacation program.

Annually elected representatives of the local community, together with program representatives, manage the Factory. 
As a small but effective, local, welfare organization, The Factory identifies with the local community, 
including the provision of support for people of high social and economic disadvantage. 
They achieve this with the support of their partners Barnardos Australia, Anglicare, JewishCare, and Sydney Day Nursery.
