Glen Eira Community Hub — caring connections and conversations

With COVID-19 restrictions easing in the coming months, it’s important to support social connection, positive mental health and the general wellbeing for all Glen Eira residents.

Council is excited to launch the Glen Eira Community Hub, a new online space for caring connections and conversations.

The Community Hub is part of our ongoing Be Kind Glen Eira campaign, which encourages kindness to yourself, to others and to local businesses.

The Hub not only includes links to Council information, but also has a range of other activities including:

  • Discussion forums — share your thoughts and thank local community members, spread some good news stories, post on the community noticeboard and even provide tips for keeping green.
  • Place mapping — identify local businesses (including your own) on the map and include important updates relating to opening hours and how services are being delivered.
  • Weekly challenges — an interactive challenge that will help Glen Eira residents to think outside the box. The first task is seeking architects of the world’s best blanket fort — a structure made out of blankets.

Over the coming weeks, the Community Hub will also be seeking contributions of your stories from lockdown, including videos, photos, art and more, for an archival exhibition. There will also be opportunities to provide feedback on how the pandemic has affected you to help us understand how Council can help.

Join us on the Hub today.
