Orana Adult Learning
Orana Adult Learning fills a very important need in the community in bringing people together, allowing them to learn and form friendships. We cater for seniors, young mothers, men and women young and old. People that sometimes just need that human touch and kindness that maybe lost in their lives or people that just enjoy being with others and learning.
Orana Early Support
The Orana Early Support mission is to improve the quality of life for families with newborns and young children, to build a healthier community. Orana Early Support Service was set up in May 2005 to support families with little or no local support networks. Our co-ordinator supports fully trained volunteers to undertake home visiting to assist families for up to 12 months.
Orana Central is your local neighbourhood community centre providing services to the residents of the Sutherland Shire. We are open Monday to Friday and you can find us at 3a Stapleton Avenue, Sutherland. We assist all members of the local community with information and referral services, social inclusion groups and targeted community support groups.
