empowering communities program (ecp)
The Sudbury House Empowering Communities Program (ECP) runs a range of activities that aim to enhance the visibility of community partner organisations, support and promote small emerging groups through Sudbury House's established networks and enhancing the skills of the community members.
Some of the activities of the program include:
- Outreach Node
- Incubator for Emerging Groups

- Skills Forum
- Enriching Local Communities
Fridays 10.00 am - 12 pm
This group focuses on a positive lifestyle for all community members. We emphasise socialisation, support, and fun in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, striving to gain employment, promoting wellness, self-esteem, and a positive future.
Activities include craft, cooking, gardening, guest speakers, motivational workshops, and games to suit the interests of the group.
aboriginal art program
We invite the community to Sudbury Community House share in a special cultural experience with Aboriginal artists who facilitate art workshops to enhance cross-cultural community connection, engagement and collaboration.
A variety of art mediums are practiced across the workshop series to respond to community desires and heighten engagement, whist also promoting Aboriginal awareness and reducing cultural barriers. Creativity is encouraged to immerse participants in contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art experiences for kinesthetic learning and to promote enduring cross-cultural understandings.
Mirrabooka community choir
The Mirrabooka Community Choir is an all-inclusive choir. People from all faiths, cultures, ages, abilities, backgrounds and socio-economic situations are welcome to participate.
The Mirrabooka Community Choir is led by a professional conductor and meet weekly, followed by supper. In addition to singing and eating together, the choir also includes an innovative Wish List program where choir members request, and grant wishes to one another.
Swinburne University research showed that 98% of With One Voice participants experienced less stress, 91% reported improved social bonds and 66% felt less depressed.
The Family Foundations program provides a safe, structured, and supportive environment for vulnerable families with children who may be at risk of homelessness. Through small dedicated team of staff and volunteers, the program provides meals, material assistance, psychological and emotional support, referrals, education assistance, advice and information.
Sudbury Community House volunteering gives you the opportunity to become an active member of the Mirrabooka community, while helping others and yourself. Our volunteers support our organisations and the community through a variety of roles and activities.
