Semester 2, 2020
Although the House is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have been delivering social and learning activities online via Zoom. Our Digital Mentors can help you to access our programs and assist with other enquiries. Contact us or call 9888 0234 to enquire about any assistance we can provide during this isolating time. The House will reopen in 2021 for onsite activities which will be subject to any restrictions in place at the time. A direct link to the latest DHHS Coronavirus advice is below on this page.
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.
Please stay safe to keep everyone safe.
