Welcome to Term 2
Our vision is to be a friendly neighbourhood house where a diverse community has opportunities to develop supportive social connections through participation and community engagement.
Welcome to Bennettswood Neighbourhood House. During this unusual time things can change very quickly. If it is necessary to lockdown we will notify participants whether classes will continue on Zoom. The House runs activities during Victorian school terms and is available for use by community groups to run their own activities all year round.
Staffed office hours are: Monday 9am – 3:30pm, Tuesday 9am – 3pm, Wednesday 9am – 4pm, Thursday 10am – 2:30pm, Friday – closed (with a monthly catch up at a local cafe). Office hours may vary and activities may run outside core hours.
