Toomah Community Centre

The construction of Toomah Community Centre is nearly complete and Living & Learning is eagerly anticipating establishing and managing the centre on behalf of the Cardinia Shire Council. We are also establishing the social enterprise training cafe which we have named 'On Track Cafe' to represent its location, adjacent to the Lakside Train Station and the fact that by undertaking hospitality skills and qualifications in the cafe, job seekers will increase their employability and get back 'On Track'. In developing the centre with partners Windermere Child and Family Services and the Cardinia Shire Council, Toomah will become a Skills and Wellbeing Centre with its purpose being to create Healthy Families and Connected Communities. Expressions of interest are now being accepted for use of the variety of meeting and consulting space. Please contact CEO Tammy Lobato for further information.
