Get ready to discover the thriving South Kingsville Community Centre (SKCC), a dynamic facility established in 1993 by a passionate group of community leaders and supported by the City of Footscray. Thanks to a generous grant from the Westgate Baptist Community, the Centre hired a Coordinator and has since flourished into a Neighbourhood House offering a range of programs and services for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Today, SKCC is managed by a dedicated volunteer Board of Governance, made up of local community members and representatives from groups based at the Centre. To ensure the smooth running of day-to-day operations, the Board employs a Centre Manager, along with a Finance Officer, Programs Officer and Childcare Coordinator.
From maternal and child health to occasional childcare, kindergarten, playgroup, senior citizens activities, social and recreational programs, and information and referral services, SKCC provides a comprehensive suite of services for individuals from birth to maturity. The Centre's well-equipped facilities are also available to community and commercial groups for functions and events.
At SKCC, volunteers play a vital role in providing support, companionship, and expertise to help achieve the Centre's goals. Without their valuable assistance, many tasks would be challenging to accomplish. If you're looking to lend a hand and make a difference in your community, we invite you to contact the Centre and learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
