Services offered

The Centre supports the community through a number of valuable “one stop shop” community focused services including:


Our Background

In 1990 members of the Redlands community identified a need for a meeting place where families and individuals could discuss community issues and obtain welfare related information.

Redlands Awareness Group [RAG], based in Cleveland and auspiced by the former Redland Shire Council, responded to this need and presented a strategic plan to the former Department of Family Services and Aboriginal and Islanders Affairs Division of Community and Youth.

The proposal was successful and lead to the provision of premises at 29 Loraine Street, Capalaba in 1990 where RAG commenced operation of a Neighbourhood Centre.

In June 1992, the Capalaba Community Centre was formed and Redland Shire Council sponsorship was redirected to this entity.

In June 1996, Capalaba Community Centre Inc., was invited to assume all of the responsibilities of RAG when it ceased operating.

The Capalaba Community Centre was incorporated and  changed its name to Redland Community Centre Inc. in order to reflect the wider reach of its services.

In June 1996, the local community, in conjunction with the Redland Shire Council, Queensland Government and Lifeline committed to a development program that resulted in the present purpose designed community centre being built on the original site at 29 Loraine Street, Capalaba and officially opened in August 1999.

Since this time, valuable community based services have been provided from this site and leased premises in Cleveland.

Our long standing and close association with relevant departments at federal, state and local government levels will be maintained into the future in order to guarantee the continuance of the Centre’s valuable services to the community.

CREATING POPPIES

Volunteers and friends of Redland Community Centre recently came together to crochet, knit and sew poppies to contribute to the "5000 poppies Project" for the 100th ANZAC anniversary, as a visual tribute to Australian servicemen and women for more than a century of service in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

A veritable red garden of 455 beautiful poppies was created, with a few personal dedications and a group dedication sent from the Centre "To all past and present service personnel: Thank-you for your sacrifices in protecting our way of life. We are forever grateful"

Poppies were posted to Melbourne to join the more than 100,000 poppies already collected, to be displayed in Federation Square, and it is anticipated to tour the country at a later date.
