Programs and activities that are being delivered at temporary accommodation will relocate to the new building at 33-35 Fairholm Grove in April. 

The Camberwell Maternal and Child Health and the Camberwell Community Centre (Leighton and Chambly) have been co-located in a purpose-built facility in a central location.

Visitors will be able to take a tour of the centre, learn about upcoming events and find out about support provided by the MCH for the growing families of Boroondara.

About the project

Camberwell Community Centre has been redeveloped in response to community need. The new purpose-built facility is designed to meet the demand for the centre’s popular programs and activities now and into the future.

The new building is larger and better configured to accommodate all the centre’s activities and programs in one location in Fairholm Grove.

It is also home to the Camberwell Maternal and Child Health, providing maternal and child health services in the middle of Camberwell for the first time. 

The design of the new facility was reflects the extensive consultation with centre participants, and staff, the committee of management and local residents.
