Did you know that Maroondah community groups and organisations can list their contact information for free on Council’s Community Directory? To be included in the Community Directory all you need to do is register your organisations details online
The Community Directory is a free online search guide of community groups, clubs, services and facilities available across the City of Maroondah.
Maroondah Mayor, Councillor Rob Steane, said that as well as being an easy reference guide to local services, agencies and regional resources, the online directory provides information on services and facilities offered by Council.
“The online directory is a fantastic resource that not only helps you to discover what’s out there and where to find support, it also helps residents connect with health and community services in their local community,” he said.
The directory lists the details of hundreds of community-based organisations, including sporting clubs, welfare agencies, historical societies, home-care support, theatre and church groups, child care, and much more.
Visitors to Council website can search for a specific listing or browse categories alphabetically. You can also view community directory listings by typing in a keyword and hitting ‘search’, or search by category, subcategory or organisation name.
“Best of all, the directory is readily accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This means groups listed can easily update their online listing at any time, as details change,” Cr Steane said.
For organisations not yet included in the directory, they can register their details online or by contacting Council by phone.
All updates can be completed online and should include an email address where possible.
“With so many active community groups and organisations operating across Maroondah, the directory supports the valuable work they do and services offered,” he said.
To be included in the directory you must be a community-based group, not-for-profit organisation or provide a community service.
