Yeronga Community Centre

Yeronga Community Centre

The Yeronga Community Centre has been providing a helping hand to the local community since we opened our doors in September 2012.

Grown from the efforts of the Yeronga Flood Recovery Centre – a local community initiative that responded locally to the Brisbane Floods of 2011.

Now we continue that tradition by providing a friendly space for people to meet, use our facilities, create connections, learn new things and access support.

We offer a range of programs to create strong and active communities including:

  • Information and referral services
  • Art and craft activities
  • Seniors program
  • Computer and printing assistance
  • Community breakfasts
  • Social events

Yeronga Community Centre has a wide range of activities and events we run together with the local community.

Bread Basket
Free bread is available each day thanks to Brumby’s Moorooka and Le Campagne bakery at Greenslopes. Donations are gratefully appreciated and allow this program to be self-funded.

Seniors Morning
In 2015 we began a pilot program to increase and enhance socialisation and interaction in our senior community. The program includes a cooking program for our seniors who may not be eating as well as they should. Indoor bowls, trivia and games, old time music, games and dance to improve and enhance non strenuous physical activity, promote cognitive stimulation and having fun. This program enables seniors to interact with others in their community in a welcoming engaging environment at low cost. It is a weekly gathering for morning tea, conversation and activities from 10:00am-12:00pm.

Craft Morning
Every Thursday morning from 9:30am-11:30am a craft activity is held. Past activities that the craft group members engaged in included running the craft stall at Yeronga State School Fete and participating in the 5000 Poppy Project for the ANZAC Day 100 Year anniversary.  All levels of ability are welcomed and instruction is provided. There is no cost and morning tea is included.

Community information, support, referral and advocacy
Including telephone access, community newsletter, information and referral to assistance and support with social and community needs. Laptops and internet access is available to community members. Please note: Some restrictions apply regarding time and access.

Volunteers are an important part of the fabric of Yeronga Community Centre and they perform a wide variety of functions that support the work of the Centre in a range of ways.

These include volunteering for the Management Committee, Reference Group, assisting with fundraising, supporting our Bread Basket Program, supporting our groups and activities program and helping out generally around the Centre.
