Welcome to Glen Park

Glen Park Community Centre is a friendly, supportive and welcoming environment for everyone in the community.

Our mission is to create a strong, connected community - free from poverty, isolation and injustice, where every person has access to food, housing, social and economic participation, lifelong learning and support.

We’re a member of Learn Local - a network of over 300 not-for-profit organisations across Victoria offering adult community education and training to people from all walks of life. We are one in over 400 Neighbourhood Houses located throughout Victoria. Glen Park opens its doors to approximately 800 people per week, provides programmed services to an average of 156 people per week and the Centre is used by the community at least 48 hours per week.

Glen Park is home to a successful registered Social Enterprise cafe; Cafe on the Park, offering delicious meals, catering, training and volunteering opportunities. More importantly, Cafe on the Park is the driving force behind our Emergency Relief Program; P.O.W.E.R and facilitates the distribution of 1250kgs of food per month to some of our most vulnerable Victorians.

We are very proud of the service Glen Park Community Centre provides in the community and encourage you to support the Centre by enrolling in a class, eating in the cafe or becoming a member.

Glen Park's Community Value equates to $5.46 for every $1 of income. Now, that is a pretty good return on investment, don't you think?

Take your time browsing through our website to find out what opportunities your Centre has to offer you and we look forward to seeing you in the Centre.
