St Helens Neighbourhood House was established in the early 1980’s and is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation offering a range of activities that meet community needs. We are governed by a dedicated Volunteer Management Committee. The Manager, with the assistance of a dedicated team of staff and volunteers ensures the centre runs smoothly, efficiently and effectively on a daily basis.
Volunteers assist in a wide variety of the Centre’s programs e.g. Community Garden; Eating with Friends; Men’s Shed; Shed Shop; Op Shop; Maintenance of Centre and Garden to name but a few.
The Centre provides a venue for community groups and individuals and various service providers to hold meetings, conduct workshops and activities.
We have a strong commitment to provide access to educational opportunities, socialisation opportunities and support services. The services provided for at the centre cover a substantial amount of essential and non-essential community services and you can read more about them under the Activities and Services.
