Please Note: We have closed the Lorikeet Centre to maintain physical distancing requirements associated with reducing the prevalence COVID-19. We are providing phone support and connecting regularly with members. Please call us if you would like us to stay connected during this period.
The Lorikeet Centre is member based. You need to complete an application form and understand the code of conduct and your rights and responsibilities to become a member. Once your membership is accepted, we send you a regular newsletter and calendar of events.
Lorikeet is a member driven community centre to support people living with mental illness.
While the Lorikeet centre is based on a community philosophy and embedded with peers supporting peers, it also provides some individualised tailored support to people based on their goals and priorities. To this end, members have been assisted to find housing, gain employment, manage tenancy problems, engage with primary health, participate in training and education, and various other challenges.
At the centre we have activities each day, including participating in gardening at the local community garden. We have a commercial kitchen where members assist to prepare a nutritious lunch. Lunch costs $4.60 or you can bring your own.
We have a gym equipment and have a regular walking group. Computers and the internet is available to you. We have a plot in the local community garden, with a weekly gardening program for members. We host an annual break away to a different destination each year for members.
