Funding Support and Sources of Income

The Walker Close Community Centre is proudly supported  with recurrent funding : Department of Human and Health Services under the “Neighborhood Houses Co-ordination Program and The Hobsons Bay City Council to cover operational costs  and own internal sources from hiring rooms and running  courses. 

The Centre also gets one of grants from local business that includes, Mobil, Hobsons Bay Community Fund and Office Works. For various costly projects and requirement needs of community specific educational equipment, the W.C.B.H.A. often looks to Mobil Altona Refinery, one of our great supporters. The community has benefited to a great extent from its substantial contribution among other sponsors. Our other major source of income is from course fees and venue hire.

On behalf of the staff, Management Committee and other members we would like to extend our appreciation to Department of Human and Health Services, Hobsons Bay city Council for their funding support.
