Services and programs
The Brotherhood of St Laurence programs and services support disadvantaged people of all ages to build better lives for themselves. We aim to develop innovative services that are often then adopted by other community organisations and governments.
Where we work
Poverty and disadvantage in Australia today has a strong geographic dimension. The focus of our work is increasingly on particular places as well as particular groups of vulnerable people.
The Brotherhood is developing new services and programs to help build sustainable and successful new communities in Melbourne's outer suburbs.
We have recently opened the Jindi Family and Community Centre in Mernda, Australia's fastest growing suburb, and will add to our work in Melbourne outer north-east with the opening of the Epping Community Services Hub in 2016.
