As part of our social enterprise we offer hire of our spaces and buses for use by the community when they are not being used for programs and services.

Our hire fees generally cover any costs associated with hiring and maintaining the spaces and any profits from hire are used to offer additional programs for older people or people living with disability or enable us to waive co-payments for participants who are facing severe financial hardship.

We have room hire options available at both the Holdsworth Street Centre and Gaden Centre & Cafe. We also make our buses available for hire by community groups and schools.
