Neighbourhood House Week is happening across Australia on 8-15 May 2020. It is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of Neighbourhood Houses and Centres in the community.
We know the current COVID-19 has been a very challenging time for our community and we're proud that the 11 Neighbourhood Houses in Monash have continued to provide a variety of different services to the community during this period.
For most of the Houses this has meant getting to grips with online technology to deliver those classes and programs that can be conducted online. To date Waverley Community Learning Centre has quickly developed a comprehensive suite of over 15 classes and programs online, with the other Houses too developing online programs.
In addition, a couple of the Houses are also providing material support to their local vulnerable residents in the form of food parcels and other goods. Our two Community Support and Information Services based in Oakleigh and Mount Waverley have also continued to provide extensive support despite a huge reduction in their volunteers. Well done to all our community organisations and what a fantastic time to celebrate them all.
