Fresh New Plans for Senior Citizens Hall with Renovation and New Management!

Bribie Respite and Support Services has resumed management of the Senior Citizens Hall on its site, a building it has owned for 30 years.

Bribie Respite and Support Services has trusteeship of the land on which it sits at 96-108 Arcadia Avenue, Woorim, from the QLD State Government but it owns all the buildings on that land.

For a few years the Senior Citizens Hall and its activities have been managed by the Bribie District All Age Social Activities Centre Inc (BAC). BAC has facilitated a variety of activities from the hall, including carpet bowls, dancing, table tennis and Voices choral group. Those activities will be continued under BRASS’ management, with no immediate interruption to the schedule.

As part of its new management BRASS will refurbish the hall, which is in a state of some disrepair, and install air conditioning so that users will have a safe, clean and pleasant environment in which to pursue their leisure activities.

The site at Arcadia Avenue is a hub for important community services on Bribie Island. Bribie Respite and Support Services runs a Learning Centre for young people with a disability as well as day respite services for older people and people with dementia. Bribie Meals on Wheels also operates from the site and sits alongside the Senior Citizens Hall with its full program of leisure activities.

Bribie Respite and Support Services is deeply embedded in the community and has a long history of caring for older and disabled people on Bribie Island. It is dedicated to providing the best in respite services within a warm, community-focused setting.
