Bringing People Together – Chatty Café


YCC has recently established three Chatty Café meet-ups where people
can connect and make new friends, and participate in activities of mutual interest.
The Chatty Cafe Scheme aims to bring people together to chat and to build
and encourage social connections within the local community, and to help
reduce social isolation and loneliness.

Community meet-ups, activities and gatherings are a great way to
connect with others, make new friends, nurture long-lasting relationships,
and often help other people in your community in a multitude of ways.
In the end, you can walk away from a live event with something as simple
as a good feeling and a great memory… to something as amazing as a
new friendship that can last for years.

Connecting carers meet-up

Meeting every Tuesday online at 10am.

Connecting Carers at Yarraville Community Centre meets online every Tuesday at 10am and is open to all people who are carers.  We connect to share support, referrals and most importantly to build friendships and share our experiences and interests.
