It’s so great to be back and preparing for a wonderful 2024. With many new structures and spaces for Healesville Living and Learning Centre, we are excited to be seeing what the new year will bring.

With a broader selection of classes, workshops and groups on offer we hope you will find something you enjoy. Please refer to our program for more information.

Our administration offices are moving into the Community Link next to Coles, and we are looking forward to being so central. Our classrooms at 1 Badger Creek Road will still be utilised until June 2024. The Hub building and the Women’s Shed will remain on the current site.

As the year progresses we will begin to work with Yarra Ranges Council and other community groups to share the existing spaces around town. With some lovely rooms at the Memo, and Community Link to explore, we will also be continuing the relationships we have had over so many years with Badger Creek Hall and the Darron Honey Centre.

Have you ever considered volunteering? Our new and improved volunteering program will be offering greater training and development opportunities, as well as continuing providing the community with the valuable resources of the East End Opportunity Shop. We are in need of many more helpers to lighten the load on the fabulous group we have. So if reception or retail are your thing, give us a call.

Our Community Development program is also filling up quickly. We will be taking our first trip down to the Midsumma Pride March on 4 February at St Kilda, and our usual Pride Dinners will commence on 29 February.

Pathways for Carers will meet at Beechworth Bakery at 9.45am on the fourth Wednesday of each month, beginning 28 February. We are excited to be offering further community forums throughout the year, exploring the NDIS and how to manage wills and power of attorney.

The Healesville Women 4 Women program has taken a breather while we reestablished our committee after many of our group moved out of the area. We are looking forward to having our first meeting for 2024 in February. If you would like to join the group, or our committee, please reach out via our Facebook page, or through the centre.

You can contact us at 59625982, or reception@hllc.org.au or just pop in to see us.
