A little about us…
The Amaroo Neighbourhood Centre opened initially as an op-shop/Fix-it Centre in 1980 arising from a need in the west ward of Waverley for a local organisation to provide a range of goods and services that the local residents could afford.
For nearly 40 years Amaroo has provided assistance to those in need.
Amaroo is funded by the Department of Human Services under the Neighbourhood Houses Co-ordination Program funding and by the City of Monash, who supply 'in kind' support.
Staff and volunteers
Amaroo is managed and maintained by a dedicated team of brilliant Volunteers and Staff!
