The City defines a Community Hub as a satellite location in the City which has co-located City-led services, facilities and spaces for community activities. The Hubs focus on meeting the needs of each hub’s local residents all in one convenient location. The intent behind the establishment of local Community Hubs is to co-locate services and provide:
- A place where people come, stay and interact
- A place to locally access a range of services and programs
- Improved facility utilisation (active and passive)
- Improved opportunities for various community organisations to collaborate and innovate
- Opportunities for City Officers to work collaboratively and cross-functionally in response to local community needs
- Avoiding duplication of services, programs and resources.
There are currently four Hubs including Mirrabooka Community Hub, Osborne Community Hub, Inglewood Town Square and Scarborough Community Hub. Each Hub differs slightly with spaces, services and activities aligned with the needs of the surrounding community. The extent of City buildings and infrastructure also vary across each Hub.
Further information about our community hubs can be found here on the Community hubs page.
