Community Hubs

Community Hubs Australia approached Lighthouse to oversee the work at the three community hubs in Shepparton. This is an ideal partnership because Lighthouse is deeply connected in the community and business sector and can provide easy links to support the outcomes for migrant women and their children. This support improved school readiness which is a Lighthouse priority.

Community Hubs act as a gateway for connecting families with each other, with their school and with existing services. Greater Shepparton is home to 3 Community Hubs, located at Gowrie Street Primary School, St Georges Road Primary School and Wilmot Road Primary School.

Community Hubs focus on engaging women who have pre-school children, and leverage existing facilities in primary schools and community centres.

St Georges Road Primary School/Shepparton English Language Centre Community Hub supports over 80 families from 19 different cultures.

Weekly activities include, healthy cooking with the little cooks, sewing and knitting for mums and their children, English and reading to children, support and gardening.

"I was feeling lonely and didn't have friends then all of a sudden when I joined the community hub everything was different" - A mother

"Our hearts are sad, but these activities make our minds happy and give us confidence. I don't feel so isolated now." - A mother

Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project acknowledges and pays respect to the traditional custodians of the Shepparton region on whose lands we are located, the Yorta Yorta peoples and their Elders past, present and emerging. Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project recognises, respects and supports all community members regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ability, or age.
