While it offers a range of services and support groups, for many, the Griffith Community Centre is also a place to make friends and have good conversations.
This aspect of the centre is set to be celebrated as part of national Neighborhood Centre Week.
The nationwide initiative has been created to highlight the important role community centres play in their towns - and the theme this year is 'loneliness: the solution is community'.
Centre co-ordinator Peta Dummett says by offering a place for the community to gather the centre has helped to tackle loneliness.
"Community centres by their very nature help combat loneliness by providing a space for people to meet and form meaningful connections through participation in community programs and projects," Ms Dummett said.
"And we know that when it comes to loneliness - they work."
In honour of the national week, Ms Dummett is inviting members of the community down to the centre for a fun day of forging friendships and enjoying activities.
The celebration will be held on Thursday, May 13 at 80 Benerembah Street.
Activities will begin at 11am with an introduction to gentle exercise and minfulness.
There will then be lunch at 12pm, with traditional Indian and Samoan dishes provided by volunteers.
The afternoon will center around relaxing arts and crafts, including traditional weaving demonstrations from some members of the community.
"Everyone is welcome to come ... so please join us in celebrating the important work we do for the community," Ms Dummett said.
