The Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre is a safe drop-in centre for refugee families, people seeking asylum, and new arrivals to come together to access essential services and to build genuine friendships. It’s a place where everyday Australians and new arrivals are given a space to interact, to build authentic relationships for life.

We provide support through programs such as English classes, social programs to practice conversational English, fortnightly community dinners, volunteer opportunities, food and furniture donations, emergency relief, social support, school holiday programs, free internet cafe , and most importantly, friendship and welcome.
