In January this year Sydney Community Services merged with The Meeting House in Lane Cove North.

The Meeting House is based in Stokes Street in Lane Cove North. It is a wonderful community centre with amazing indoor and outside space for families and children. Our aspirations for the Stokes Street Centre are that we provide a fabulous community centre for everyone in the Lane Cove North area.

Up until now the funding for The Meeting House has been limited and that meant access to the space was also limited. By joining with Sydney Community Services we feel we can help to ensure the Lane Cove North community can optimise the opportunities for the centre.

We want to provide a true community place for children, women, men, families and all other community groups to come together and have a space for sharing and exchanging experiences.

We are also offering a safe space for other organisations to hold meetings. We welcome the community views on what is needed and also volunteers who might help us to provide those activities.

Please send your ideas to me at gbatt@sydneycs.org
