Senior centres

Connect Victoria Park 

A well-established not-for-profit community organisation, Connect Victoria Park Inc has been active for over 60 years in Victoria Park. Until 2015 we were known as the Senior Citizens’ Welfare Association.

Connect Victoria Park collaborates with older people to increase wellbeing and to support ageing in community. We use a Housing + Hub model to achieve that.

The Housing + Hub model is an innovative solution to address social isolation, health needs of an ageing population, and the housing crisis for low income older people, especially older single women.

The Village Hub, which operates from our community centre on 5 Mackie Street, offers ways for people 55+ to pursue other needs – belonging and love, social connection, self-esteem and purpose. Tenants in our housing are automatically members of the Village Hub. 
Established in 2018, the Village Hub is the first of its kind in Western Australia, with more than 300 members. It is an outlet for members and tenants to find others with similar interests, strike friendships, run groups around activities of interest, and support each other as they age.
