The committee employ the services of 4 paid staff who run the centre on a day to day basis. The primary funding for the centre is through the Department of Health & Human Services and the City of Casey, with the balance of operating costs being met by hire charges and some fundraising, we are proud to be able to offer quality, affordable services within Berwick and surrounding areas. We are sometimes able to offer concessions to people who could not otherwise attend our Centre.
Volunteers are the backbone of our centre and we place great value on the contribution of each and every one. If you are interested in finding out about volunteering in our organisation please contact the centre office. We would be delighted to tell you more about the opportunities in our organisation. We encourage people to consider becoming part of our Committee of Governance.
