Welcome to the Somerville Community House Inc.
.... at the heart of the community
We are a not-for-profit Community House that provides programs and services to the community in a friendly and welcoming environment, run by local volunteers and staff. Each term we have new and exciting programs on offer, so make sure you check updates.
Our mission is to provide a place where people come together to meet others and share and gain skills. A place where you can come to know and belong to your Community. Our vision is simple - unlock your potential.
We value: confidentiality, empowerment, responsibility, accessibility and ethical business principles in a welcoming and caring environment.
History of the Somerville Community House
The State Government in 2000 invited applications from Neighbourhood Houses to apply for Department of Human Services Funding. Somerville Community House applied for funding and was successful. The Mornington Peninsula Shire also backs the Somerville Community House with funding, as it does all Community Houses on the Peninsula. This funding is ongoing each year, and enables us to continue to expand our services and offer a wide range of activities and support services to the local communities.
The refurbished Annie Sage Community Centre includes three community meeting spaces and a kitchen. The new centre houses the Shire's maternal and child health team in two Child and Family Health consulting rooms, providing services to about 40 families weekly as well as holding first time parent groups
The formation of the Somerville Community House Inc. is a great achievement - and we pride ourselves on offering a range of activities and courses to people of all ages in the community.
Heartfelt Thanks to our Volunteers
The Somerville Community House wouldn't be the same without their dedicated team of volunteers. From the The Committee of Management to Group Leaders, those who help in the office, the kitchen and in the grounds. Everyone plays an important part in making the House such a warm and friendly place to visit.
Thank you all for your contribution!
