"Offering a range of activities designed by the members and community."
A neighbourhood house is where people can become involved in community events, find out about other services or activities in the area, join a class or support group or take up an activity for fun and enjoyment.
At Fifteen Gibson street we bring people together to connect, learn and contribute in thelocal community through social, educational, recreational and support activities.
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.
The Manager's position is funded for 25 hours per week by the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing and employed by the Committee of Managment to implement a program of activies for the community, partner with organisations,build strong relationships and add value to the community.
