The facility has has been refurbished with new floors, ceilings and a kitchenette to create a Community Gathering Space that it can be used for cultural and Community events.

“The day has finally arrived when we can showcase this great Community Gathering Space,” said HAMS manager Jean Woods. “We wanted to provide a culturally safe and friendly space where Community could gather.”

The space will be used for special events, as a yarning place, for children to play or to do their homework in a safe environment.

The project also included development of a new culturally safe and confidential area for the Youth Mental Health Team to meet with young people.

The project was funded by an Aboriginal Affairs NSW Community and Place Grant which supports Closing the Gap for Aboriginal communities.
