Coronavirus update 13 March 2020

COVID-19 restrictions: what's closed and what's open.

Neighbourhood houses and community centres

As directed by the Victorian Government, neighbourhood houses and community centres can open for up to 20 people indoors, with groups of up to ten people.

Please contact your local centre for more information.

There are a number of ways they have modified their services to ensure you can stay connected, engaged and supported. You can keep active and engaged by participating in one of the many online courses on offer.

Neighbourhood houses and community centres bring people together to connect, learn and contribute in their local community through social, educational and support activities.

Eleven neighbourhood houses and community centres operate in Boroondara, offering a range of courses, activities and services for a modest fee, including:

  • short and one-off courses
  • childcare
  • social groups
  • fitness classes
  • art groups
  • playgroups
  • school holiday activities
  • rooms and halls for hire
  • games groups.
