Neighbourhood houses offer an enticing variety of great training courses and cultural, social, health and wellbeing activities.
These not-for-profit community organisations also have public internet access, some children’s services, and a range of information and resources. Courses and activities are free or low cost to allow as many people as possible to take part.
Neighbourhood houses are managed through a volunteer committee. You’ll find neighbourhood houses in Beaconsfield, Bunyip, Cockatoo, Emerald, Lang Lang, Pakenham (two centres) and Upper Beaconsfield.
