The Place: Charlestown Community Centre

The Place: Charlestown Community Centre is a not-for-profit community facility located at Charlestown Square. The Place facilitates and enables participant led community activity to build community connection and a culture of respect and resilience.

The organisation’s primary goal is to support active Community Development. This is enabled through the mechanism of a Financially Sustainable Social Enterprise that offers facilities for hire. Our well-appointed facilities cater to individuals, groups and businesses at affordable rates and serve to generate funds towards meeting our primary goal of active community development. Wi-Fi is available throughout our facility and digital media is available in most rooms.

The Place also accommodates a range of regular programs and activities for the community that cater to children, youth, adults and seniors. We encourage and support other organisations to bring their services to the Lake Macquarie area via the use of our facility. Visit our website for a comprehensive list of services available.
