Glenroy Community Hub

The Glenroy Community Hub is an integrated health and lifelong learning centre designed to support, educate, and inspire locals at all stages of their life.

It is ‘a one-stop shop’ for residents to have access to Council and community-based services in Merri-bek’s north, all under one roof.
