We have implemented new hygiene practices across all locations, and are meticulously and frequently cleaning to ensure a safe and healthy environment. We encourage everyone to take extra care - especially in the case of personal hygiene practices and vaccinations, as these are the most effective methods of protecting against illness.

This is Your Neighbourhood Hub

Bendigo Neighbourhood Hub is a community organisation that welcomes all and fosters wellbeing and community engagement in Bendigo. Through the efforts of our volunteers and staff, we provide a 'less official' place of community support and local learning. We also provide a place for special interest, community and support groups to meet; we run community-based programs, and we offer accessible learning and participation opportunities through our courses, activities and community events.  

Walk right in...

Any member of the Bendigo community (This means YOU) can just drop by the house, grab a cuppa, and chat to any volunteer that is there. Sometimes, between coffees and confusion- we might even be able sort out some thing that is concerning you, or at least point you to someone who can.

Wireless Internet and tea and coffee facilities are available. Contact us to find out about room availability and costs; to arrange a visit to view a room, or to get a copy of our room hire agreement.
