VISION To empower members of our diverse community to participate fully within Australian society.

MISSION To support and resource community groups and organisations undertaking social cultural and community development activities. To provide Language, Literacy and Educational programs accessible to all members of our community.

Springvale Neighbourhood House

Springvale Neighbourhood House was built in 1983 and was established to provide a resource centre for self-help and social and action groups. It is managed by a group of people who give their time freely to look after it with the support of paid staff.
This is a friendly supportive and professional environment for a diverse community where access to language and literacy is seen as integral to the achievement of educational and life goals.
As an innovative and resourceful team of professional educators, staff and volunteers, we respond to adult learning challenges and utilise our skills in planning and delivery of quality outreach language, literacy and vocational programs.
We offer a meeting place, a warm welcome and an opportunity to share skills and make new friends. Our wide range of courses, activities and events are run here at Springvale Neighbourhood House in Queens Avenue and at The Literacy Centre in Lightwood Road and at associated cluster venues.

About our Adult Education Programs

Springvale Neighbourhood House provides Nationally Accredited Certificate Courses. Springvale Neighbourhood House Inc. is a Registered Training Organisation registered by the Victorian Qualifications Authority. R.T.O. No: 4098

Enrolment forms are completed prior to commencement of a program. Fees are paid in full before the program commences or by term with a signed payment plan. Concessions are available for eligible students. Some fees are exempted in cases of hardship. Full fee charges apply to agency funded enrolments.

If Springvale Neighbourhood House cancels a program or a student withdraws prior to commencement of a program, a full refund will be given to enrolled students. Fees will not be refunded if the course has been delivered for more than half the term, unless under special circumstances. However this can be negotiated with the Literacy Co-ordinator if you are experiencing hardship.


A large group of volunteers help out at Springvale Neighbourhood House. At the House and the Literacy Centre volunteers help at events and in the office. At the Literacy Centre we also have volunteer tutors who assist in teaching English. There is a training course available for Literacy volunteers at the Literacy Centre. If you would like to volunteer to help please call the office.
