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.
