Our aim is to create a more vibrant, sustainable, resilient and self-reliant community.
WNC is a not for profit Incorporated Association providing a wide range of programs that are responsive to the changing needs of the community, which includes Younga People, Children and their families and those experiencing disadvantage. These programs range from recreational and educational group activities to support groups, advocacy and practical support.
Our aim is, through the provision of quality services, to create a more vibrant, sustainable, resilient and self-reliant community. We believe that every person has the right to expect equal access to programs and services.
WNC is also providing fire recovery assistance along with existing programs
Winmalee Community Food Cupboard
This is a new initiative for the Winmalee Neighbourhood Centre. With the loss of the Emergency Relief funding, which has had a major impact on the community, we are now providing a subsidised food program. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, there is fresh bread, fruit and vegetables at no cost. Every Friday, the Centre will open its Food Cupboard from 10:15am to 12:30pm. This will allow those on low incomes to access the subsidised food. Each person who joins this project will be able to purchase ten items for $10, or fifteen items for $15. This will provide real value for money, and the cost incurred is for the transportation of food products. Items will change on a weekly basis, and at present, members can access the program on a fortnightly basis. Click HERE to download a pantry list.
If you would like to support this project, please contact the Centre Manager, as we are always seeking ways to support and increase the wellbeing of the community.
This project is for those who have been affected by the 2013 bush fires. Winmalee Neighbourhood Centre is distributing Business Supporting Community packs on behalf of various businesses who have supplied discount vouchers for their goods and services. The following businesses are supporting the project:
The Good Guys, Amber Tiles, Super A-Mart, Paintright Springwood, Honey Gem Nursery, Lower Mountains Landscape, Solomon Flooring, Harvey Norman Lighting, Curtain Wonderland-home of living, Downes Wholesale Nursery and The Door Shoppe.
Are you a business that could support this project easing the financial burden of those rebuilding or renovating due to extreme fire damage, and re-establishing their land and gardens? If so, please contact WNC to organise adding your vouchers to the pack.
Lions Assistance - The Local Hire Shop (LHS) at Valley Heights.
If you require a stump grinder, posthole digger, chainsaw, Dingo or just a hammer, Lions can assist by giving a substantial subsidy towards the hire of equipment. Once you have decided what equipment you need and have an idea what the cost of hire will be, please come and see Lions at LHS. They are there every first and third Saturday of the month from 10.30am to 12.30pm. LHS closes at 1pm on a Saturday. There is no expiry date on the subsidy, however your intention to hire will be given to Oliver, the owner of LHS. He needs this information to plan ahead and make sure he has the equipment when you will need it. This is made possible by Winmalee Lions.
