In August 2008 the parish entered into a partnership with Anglicare SA whereby the paid staff of the Picket Fence and the Project Centre became Anglicare employees and volunteers came under the Anglicare umbrella.
In July 2017 the St Mary’s Parish resumed management of the Project Centre and volunteers reverted to being parish volunteers.
In April 2020 Anglicare closed the Picket Fence in line with COVID regulations. It remained closed until June 2021 when Anglicare officially withdrew from the partnership.
In July 2021 the parish is planning to reopen the Picket Fence as soon as possible.
The St Mary’s Urban Farm continues to operate and flourish under parish volunteer leadership.
