About the organisation

Organisation name : South Kingsville Community Centre Inc

South Kingsville Community Centre is a Not For Profit Organisation. It was formed in 1993 when the City of Footscray set up a steering committee. A grant from the Westgate Baptist Community enabled the employment of a Coordinator. Over the years, SKCC has developed and grown into a vibrant facility providing a range of services and programs for the community. The City of Hobsons Bay owns the building. However, the Centre is managed by a volunteer Board of Management, which comprises of members from the local community and groups based at the Centre.

SKCC provides a range of services for people from birth to mature age, including maternal and child health, kindergarten, occasional childcare, playgroup, senior citizens activities, social, educational and recreational programs, and information and referral services. The facilities are available to the community and commercial groups for functions and are well utilised for this purpose. Everyone is welcome to drop in for an activity or class, lend a hand or just have a cuppa.
