Civic has four Community Hubs – Hinkler Hub, Liverpool Hub, Sutherland Hub, and New Era Hub that offer a wide range of engaging and educational activities aimed at increasing your skills, knowledge, independence and confidence.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Civic is taking specific action to maintain client and staff safety. We have temporarily suspended visits to our community hubs and have made classes available with our new online hub, Civic@Home, which provides online learning and other activities, as well as live events, gatherings and lessons, to encourage and promote health, wellbeing and connection during social isolation.
Hinkler Community Hub
The Hinkler Hub is an active hub and the place to be if you like to spend time outdoors. Members can choose from a range of community-based activities to meet individual interests and goals.
The week starts with golf, gym classes or bowling, and then it’s on the move from there, with visits to different parks, train travel and swimming. Groups reconvene at the end of the week for cooking lessons.
“We have adults aged 18 to 65 in our groups with one thing in common – a desire to engage in community activities. We love exploring the local area and the many activities, sights and sounds it has to offer. We even try to take our cooking lessons to different locations, often barbequing foods like fish and baking damper.” Sarah – Hinkler Hub.
Liverpool Community Hub
“Whatever your passion and goals may be, the Liverpool Hub can work with you to develop your interests and support you to develop new skills. We have a wide and varied range of activities on offer at the hub and we are always open to new ones.” Debra – Liverpool Hub.
The Hub’s new gaming room is immensely popular. Complete with all the latest technology, you can enter a virtual reality world or – as discovered by our regulars – have fun researching your family history. The ability to select and play music videos via the Smart TV has really brought some of our quieter members out of their shell.
Cooking classes are another favourite, and through our skills program members are supported to prepare meals from start to finish, including shopping for groceries and chopping ingredients through to enjoying meals together as a group and cleaning up once they’ve finished. There’s also art therapy, swimming and horticulture and so much more.
Sutherland Community Hub
At the Sutherland Hub members receive a high level of focus and attention, with smaller groups enjoying a range of activities and outings.
Reach for the sky on a trip to Flip Out trampoline centre, be at one with nature with a local park visit or whack some golf balls and practice your swing at the driving range, there is so much to do.
“Whatever your interests the Sutherland Hub can develop a program to suit your needs. Our high staff ratios, and consistent routine mean that members feel safe and secure whatever activities they choose. Our art and drama activities are really popular with members who want to express themselves. It’s a real joy to see.” Katy – Sutherland Hub

New Era Community Hub
Develop lifelong friendships and get out and about and connect with the community at the New Era Hub in Sutherland.
“Our holistic programs cater to small groups and involve everything from morning tea outings to develop social skills and offer company and support to local seniors, volunteering at the local toy library, Sydney-wide train travel, gardening, art and massage.
“Our yoga classes are favourite for lots of members encouraging calmness and wellbeing. There really is something for everyone and new friends waiting to meet you.” Katy – New Era Hub
