How do you enrol for an activity?
You need to come into the House to enrol and pay for an activity before it starts. The office is open from Mondays to Fridays during school terms from 9.30 am to 4.00 pm. Phone 9357 4631.
Fawkner Community House does not exclude people because they cannot afford to pay the fees. If you would like to do a course and cannot afford the fee please speak to the manager to have the fee waived.
How do we run?
Support for the running of Fawkner Community House comes from:
- Moreland City Council and the Department of Human Services
- Other community organisations and philanthropic trusts
- Course fees and fundraising activities
An elected volunteer Committee of Management made up of participants and local residents governs us. The House is managed by a manager with the assistance of an administration worker and volunteers. Come and talk to us about getting involved.
