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.
This year 58 groups have joined our House. The community groups continue to use all our rooms in both venues on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Some groups have left and others have joined. We welcome new Groups to set up at the House and at the Literacy Centre so feel free to contact either office.
