If you have an idea, issue or concern about your community we could support you to address it. We use a community development framework to support and empower small changes that might have a big impact to the broader community.
We strive to respond to the needs and interests of the community by responding and implementing groups, workshops or resources as the need or issue is identified.
We always strive to develop collaborative relationships with you as well as all levels of Government and the wider community services sector.
If you are struggling with personal issues, mental health, financial pressures, loneliness or other life's stresses we might be able to help. We have a team of community and social workers who can provide emotional support, link you to one of our programs or provide a referral to a partnering organisation.
The Centre receives funding from Federal and State Government to assist you if you are in need of emergency financial relief. We can assist with a small amount of food vouchers, as well as pantry items, and fresh produce provided to us by OZHarvest.
We can also support you with Non-Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) applications of up to $1200
If you are experiencing financial stress contact the Centre.
