Welcome to Toowoomba Clubhouse
Toowoomba Clubhouse is a Toowoomba-based community that is dedicated to supporting adults in the community who have experienced mental ill health and provides them with opportunities to develop the skills and confidence necessary to live satisfying and productive lives.
The Clubhouse is a restorative environment for people who have had their lives disrupted by mental illness, and who need the support and belief of others to assist them in their recovery. Through participation in the Clubhouse programs, individuals are provided with the opportunity to re-join the worlds of friendship, family, employment, education, secure housing, and access to the services and supports they may individually need.
Your donations go a long way to helping people with mental health problems live productive lives. Donate now.
Toowoomba Clubhouse receives a $10,000 grant as part of the 2013 Westpac Foundation Community Grants program
A commitment to helping those suffering a mental illness in the Toowoomba region has seen Toowoomba Clubhouse become the recipient of a $10,000 Westpac Foundation Community Grant in support of their hard work.
Toowoomba Clubhouse’s Executive Director, Luke Terry, said the grant will provide a much needed funding boost to the organisation, which works with more than 600 people in the local area with a mental illness. Toowoomba Clubhouse focuses on how to gain the confidence and skills needed to combat homelessness, unemployment and social exclusion.
“Our programs are all about creating employment opportunities locally for people suffering mental illness – and with this grant, we can really make a difference in assisting and supporting those in the community”, said Mr Terry.
Arj Barker (popular US comedian) was on hand to visit Twmba Clubhouse on Saturday 5th October 2013 as part of Mental Health Week celebrations.
