What we do

Creativity, information, connection, skills

Connection through learning new skills, programs and events.

Our program is running as per normal, and during the lockdown, we are/were online.

Most of our activities and programs for 2021 are face to face and outdoor.s  Look out for 6 Weeks to Healthy Habits, Shared Reading Groups, a Photowalk, and the Kindness Project. 

Please contact us if you want to ask about anything we offer or if you want to get involved in anyway: being on the Board, being a volunteer tutor, volunteering on the coffee cart or running a group you would like to see here.

Thomastown Neighbourhood House is one of nearly 400 neighbourhood houses across Victoria and 1000 across Australia.  Each neighbourhood house offers its local community different services, courses, events and community engagement.  What is offered is often determined by the community.  So each neighbourhood house is different, but all neighbourhood houses work within a community development framework. At Thomastown we run events such as Taste of Thomastown, a monthly market and a social enterprise coffee cart, all within and in partnership with Thomastown Library.

Food Pantry

"Take What You Need.  Offer What You Can'"

Our Food Pantry is small but well used.  We accept offerings from our community and anyone can take what they need.  We also have items from Share the Dignity, and Food Bank Victoria.

Makers Space

The Makers Space is run in partnership with Thomastown Library.  It offers a place to come and create. 

The Maker's Space is currently not operating due to Covid restrictions but we are anticipating a return in 2021.  If you would like to be part of the planning for this you can meet us at the library on Fridays 4, 11 and 18 December between 10-11 to give us your ideas at Coffee and Chat
