Neighbourhood Houses bring people together to connect, learn and contribute in their local community through social, educational, recreational and
support activities, using a unique community development approach.
Community development enables communities to identify and address their own needs. It starts from the assumption that communities have
existing strengths and assets that make them part of the solution.
Neighbourhood Houses welcome people from all walks of life. This inclusive approach creates opportunities for individuals and groups to enrich their
lives through connections they might not otherwise make, strengthening networks and building social capital.


The Mission of the Gellibrand Community House is to provide a welcoming and safe place that actively fosters inclusive participation and partnership
in living and learning. We do this by offering accessible and affordable courses, programs and services designed to enrich the lives of all in our
community, regardless of age, ability or background. We encourage a sense of belonging in the community.


The Gellibrand Community House is now living in the front of The Gellibrand Public Hall.
