Community Hubs

Community Hubs connect families with each other, with their school, and with existing services. The Program is recognised as a leading model to engage and support migrant women with young children. Community hubs focus on reaching women who have pre-school children, and leverage existing facilities in primary schools and community centres.

Our Community Hubs are located on Peacock Campus and Family Learning Centre, Goldsworthy Campus

Community Hubs

Why migrant women

Without our welcoming hub to visit, many migrant women can spend most of their time at home, isolated from the rest of the community. Some migrant women in our community cannot drive, some have limited public transport access, many have young children and cannot access child-minding. Women who miss out on available services can then go without opportunities to meet other people, to learn, or to receive health support, and their children can arrive at school without having English language or social skills. Our Hub staff provide soft entry and engagement programs that help women access support they might otherwise miss.

Community Hubs Australia

Our community hubs have wonderful opportunities for families to engage in education. In addition to a visit to Melbourne - Governor General of Victoria, the team sent home activity packs during COVID isolation.
