Laverton Community Centre + Neighbourhood House
LCCCNH is a not for profit Neighbourhood House managed by the local community which offers family support, social and educational activities to all sectors of the Laverton community, especially disadvantaged community groups.
The Neighbourhood House provides adult training in a variety of areas including cooking, language and computer skills. These programs have been of assistance to new immigrants settling in the area as well as other individuals and families.
The original building is a small house designed in 1975. Currently, 5 staff members work in a cramped space with very little storage. The meeting area is the front 'lounge room' which doubles as their lunch room and main storage area.
LCCCNH require an architect or interior designer to assist them with a grant application under the Modernising Neighbourhood Houses Program. They require assistance in clarifying their space requirements and how the interior can be reworked to accomodate 5 workers, volunteers, a private meeting room and lots of storage.
Grants between $50,000 to $80,000 are available and the application must be submitted before March 2nd 2009.
