Refurbishment works commence

We are excited to announce that refurbishment works have commenced to fit out the Gladstone Mindcare Hub in preparation to open to the Gladstone community.  Following community consultation and planning, these works will see the building transform into a safe and inclusive community centre with space for social connection and health promotion activities, installation of Disability accessible amenities and consult rooms and offices.

Gladstone Mindcare Working Bee

Our first Working Bee was held on Saturday, 10 October 2020 with 31 people coming to volunteer their time, effort and energy.  It was a wonderful, family oriented day where we worked together to make the Gladstone Mindcare Hub beautiful. We are so very grateful for the help and support and look forward to continuing to work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the Gladstone community.

We will be holding further Working Bees in the near future and welcome anyone who would like to lend a hand to make this community space a place where everyone contributes, matters and belongs.
