The Lorikeet Centre is member based. You join and become a member. Once your membership is accepted, we send you a regular newsletter and calendar of events.
We are open Tuesday to Thursday 9.00am to 4.30pm or members can join our Friday outings.
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 provides individualised tailored support to each person 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.
Call in to take a tour today!
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 with a gym instructor guiding sessions twice a week. 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 have annual break away to a different destination each year.
