Murilla Community Centre Inc
Our Mission Statement:
Developing and supporting the community through awareness and response to social and human issues identified in Miles and surrounding districts.
Murilla Community Centre is a not-for-profit organisation that was established in 1991. Our core focus is to develop and support our diverse rural community by responding to social issues. We achieve this by providing help and guidance by way of information, referral, and through the delivery of community programs and services.
We connect with more than 13,000 community members each year and provide services for children, youth, families, people with disabilities and aged people. These include rural family support, financial counselling, respite services, childcare and kindergarten, community development, Medicare and child support, emergency relief, No Interest Loan Scheme, Centrelink Agency, Justice of the Peace, and youth group. We operate a community bus, print a free monthly community newsletter that is distributed to 3000 people, and provide meeting spaces for community groups.
We link our community to visiting services including job network providers, optometrist, Department of Education and Training, Department of Human Services, Department of Social Services, Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors, Lifeline Darling Downs, Toowoomba Advocacy and Support Service, and community mental health workers.
We passionately advocate for our clients and will connect them to Queensland Health and other health services, Western Downs Regional Council, Housing Queensland, Queensland Police and Emergency Services, local education providers, and church groups.
