Mobile Community Hub

Our mobile community hub makes it easier to reach out to vulnerable communities.

The multi-purpose van can be hired by not-for-profit, charitable organisations or government agencies that need to reach out to people with support, information, and an opportunity to connect.

The mobile community hub has been made possible thanks to Department of Internal Affairs funding. We acknowledge the input of our community partners who have worked with us to bring this project to life.
