The Village Hub

Connect Victoria Park’s Village Hub is the first of its kind in Western Australia, and the second in Australia. We want to make Vic Park the best place for people 55+ to live in WA.

The Village Hub helps connect people 55+ to enjoy full and purposeful lives, build community and share skills and knowledge.

We do that by providing opportunities to stay active and healthy, to meet and get to know other people, share interests, learn new skills and develop friendships.

We offer a calendar of classes and courses, provide a venue for groups to meet, and facilitate Village Hub members’ activities in the Vic Park and Perth metro areas. The Village Hub encourages members to help each other, and matches volunteers with older people who need help with small tasks.

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, and one other in Australia, the Waverton Hub in New South Wales.

Everyone can be a part of the Village Hub. People 55+ can join as members and help shape activities and services. Everyone else can become a friend of the Village Hub and volunteer to help older neighbours with small tasks. Join us!
