To be an active part of and enrich our local community.​



Our mission is to enrich our community by developing social connectedness, promoting healthy lifestyles and providing opportunities for lifelong learning, recreation and support within an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment.​


In 1977 the then City of Waverley, decided to use the property we are located in as a part time Infant Welfare Centre & Neighbourhood House. The doors officially opened on 23 August 1977. Early activities were based on a door to door survey and included: sewing lessons, flower arrangement, new mothers groups and an older person's afternoon tea. School holiday programs were introduced in 1987 and the first Baby & Toy Bazaar in 1988. The House was incorporated in 1988 with a $2 membership fee. Community involvement steadily increased throughout the 90's and the House became part of the Australian Neighbourhood House Network.
