Workshops & Support Groups
"I love coming and when I can't make it I really miss it."
The Spiers Centre’s mission is to provide a centre for support, information and empowerment of individuals, families and communities. In pursuing this purpose we aim to make a positive difference and strive towards our vision for strong, caring and resilient communities through the provision of a range of practical and innovative services.
The strength of The Spiers Centre is the closely embedded connection it has to the community, with the majority of its staff being locals themselves and with close collaboration with local organisations.
The Spiers Centre aims to work with clients to build their knowledge, confidence and skills through our services and groups. The programs focus on developing knowledge, confidence and resilience consistent with the Centre’s mission.
Community support groups include:
Compassionate Friends: Friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the grieving process.
Alcoholics Anonymous: A support group for anyone who is having trouble with alcohol. Groups are held on Tuesday, Friday and Sundays at The Spiers Centre's Neighbourhood Centre in Heathridge.
New Beginnings: Information, support and personal development for women experiencing post-natal depression.
Youth and children support: The Centre provides playgroups, Circle of Security and professional crèche support service.
Life skills and workshops: Budgeting and financial literacy workshops, craft groups and support workshops are provided to support communities.

The Spiers Centre Logo Mosaic
This mosaic was created and gifted to The Spiers Centre by our very own staff member who provides reception support as well as facilitates the Spiers Centre's Social Club.
The mosaic now takes pride of place at the Neighborhood Centre in Heathridge and is the first thing visitors see when they come in. The mosaic is a wonderful testament to the pride and dedication of our staff and serves as a constant reminder of our commitment to community.
