Peter McGowan

Vice President

Peter McGowan photo - Macarthur Accommodation System - Disability Service MacarthurPeter with his wife Anne, have four children. The eldest, Elizabeth (pictured), has Down syndrome. Peter and Anne have volunteered for St Vincent De Paul for the Moorebank region. As a couple they were often asked to visit those families where there was someone with a disability and offer information on where to seek help. Together, they volunteered, over a period of 10 years, with Faith and Light, a group who assist people with disabilities to socialise and have short breaks/holidays from parents in small group situation. This led to finding out about the work of A.C.S.N. Incorporated in 1986 and becoming involved with ACSN Inc. over the past 27 years, during which time, Elizabeth has been a resident.
