Wyee Community Hub

10th November 2021

Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—I'd like to acknowledge the many wonderful people associated with efforts to establish the new Wyee Community Hub at Wyee. Once complete, this volunteer-run function centre will offer a range of services and initiatives aimed at helping anyone who is disadvantaged or homeless. The Hub will provide a place for homeless people to do their laundry, take a shower and attend a community café. Programs aimed at combatting loneliness and improving mental health and wellbeing are also being developed, with a weekly community music class on the cards to provide a place for people to enjoy music and make new friends. The Hub will be a place where healthy relationships are forged and a helping hand can be found among a team of elderly yet energetic volunteers ready to get to work. The Hub is being co-ordinated by Senior Pastor Grego Pillay from the Seventh Day Adventist Church, but it will operate independently of the church for the whole community with the very noble goal of helping people. I thank and congratulate Pastor Grego and all concerned for this fantastic community initiative.
