Russian Community Resource Centre

The Russian Community Resource Centre provides support to people in the Russian Community. The Centre hosts many programs, and runs a CHSP service.

We believe the quality of life for our ageing population is a priority and retaining contact with a person’s culture is extremely important. Thus, the Russian Community Resource Centre provides a range of resources and programs that are culturally specific to the community.

The Centre provides a spacious meeting room and a friendly environment for all its members to meet and take part in planned activities on a weekly basis.

The Russian Community Resource Centre is an access point for members to receive information and resources through brochures, information lectures, group discussions and socialising.
