Friendly atmosphere at the community centre

The Community Centre in Yeppoon.

The Yeppoon Community Centre has long been known for its welcoming atmosphere, friendly team and wide variety of important services, offering support and advice to countless residents across Livingstone Shire.

It provides community groups with a central space to hold their community meetings, the community to engage with health, family and visiting services as well as a place for like-minded individuals to come together.

Free learning sessions (iLearn) are also held regularly on a range of general interest subjects during the day and evenings.

Some of the broad range of services provided to those in need include general information and referral assistance, outreach services, networking and social events, participation in program and activities which build skills, affordable meeting spaces for local community

groups, and life-long learning opportunities.

Not to mention the long list of workshops, discussions, displays and social events in areas such as arts and crafts, health and fitness, computing and IT, and personal development which are also held regularly at the centre.

The Community Centre is also proud to offer a ‘Dignity First Washroom’ – a welcoming space that provides free and accessible facilities for community members experiencing hardship.

It is equipped with a washing machine and dryer, toilet, and private shower, along with sanitary products for those in need. We understand the importance of maintaining dignity and providing a safe space for those facing challenges.

Beyond the physical amenities, the caring staff are also available for a friendly chat and to offer referral pathways to other organisations that can provide further assistance. You don’t have to face challenges alone – we’re here to listen and help.

Onsite, you can also find Food Relief Capricorn Coast available every Friday.

Livingstone Shire Council is extremely proud to be able to provide these important services, which are partly funded through the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, to the local community.

Drop in anytime between the hours of 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, at 80 John Street, Yeppoon.
