Programs & Services
We have a broad vision to involve people at all levels and for many reasons - and central to that is to bring a sense of security, solidarity, fun and connection
Our vision is to be a Gathering Place, so no matter your age or ability there are many ways to join in - because when we know each other we can strengthen our whole community
Payment for all courses and workshops is required prior to commencement to secure a place using credit card, cash or cheque during office hours, or by electronic funds transfer (EFT). There are payment plans available too
We'll need to know at least five working days prior to the course start date if you can't make it in order to receive a refund. Early bookings are appreciated to allow our tutors time to prepare
Get in touch to enrol in a course, or if you have any questions about the program
Sometimes you run into trouble and need help to get over a hurdle, so we will chat to you and find out how we can best help. We offer emergency relief to the local community with the generous assistance of several organisations
How to get help
Tuesdays are the best day to come in for assistance, but you can also call us to arrange an appointment - we'll need to chat to you and figure out a plan, which takes time.
TUESDAYS 10-3 OR BY APPOINTMENT
Foster Foodworks provides

meals and pastries
Foodbank Victoria assists us with the purchase of packaged foods and dry goods for our shelves

Donations (particularly warm bedding in winter) are gratefully accepted and can be made at any time directly to our office staff who will distribute items appropriately to local people in need.
We have access to established resources and can give you a hand to sort stuff out: getting a permit, a grant, something photocopied or getting connected to others going through the same challenges as you
Our staff can easily hook you up with the right help so you can get on with living life well and making ideas become reality
I found the warm atmosphere to be something I'd never experienced before, helpful in every way, plus the first meeting will always be with me as a wonderful memory, and the most important feeling for me is that you're not alone
