The Village Hub
Come alive from 55!
We are a community of people 55+ who share experiences, have fun, socialise, exercise and keep learning together. More importantly, each one of us contributes in unique ways to enrich our community.
The Village Hub offers an outlet for members interests, opportunities to meet others, form friendships, help out and receive assistance, and feel part of something bigger.
At the Village Hub, we are helping to restore a village environment and demonstrating that, with a little help from our friends, it’s possible to age well, independently and interdependently, in the community we love.
The Village Hub offers a calendar of classes, courses and events, and provides a venue for groups to meet and run activities of interest. Examples of member-led activities are our social cycling, creative writing and photography groups, book club, and a popular monthly sundowner.
Members can access support from the Village Hub Help Centre, and request or offer help through the Neighbour-to-Neighbour volunteering program.
The Village Hub is inspired by a growing movement to redefine ageing that started in the United States in the late 90’s. Today there are around 300 villages in the US. We are the first virtual village in Western Australia and the second in Australia, after the Waverton Hub in New South Wales.
Everyone is welcome at the Village Hub, and although we are based in Vic Park, some of our members come from as far as Balcatta and Bullcreek. People over 55 can join as members and help shape the Village Hub. Everyone else can be a friend of the Village Hub and volunteer to help older neighbours with small tasks.
